On Wednesday 21st June, 12 culture-hungry Roffensians sought out Glyndebourne Opera House in Sussex.
With its magnificent gardens, incredible panoramic views and a magnificent picnic from our amazing Catering team, there was much more than just the art-form of opera to take in.
The production was certainly edgy, if not bizarre at times: Director Mariame Clément had wanted to expose the hideous misogyny and toxic masculinity of Giovanni.  The singing was absolutely first rate, as was the orchestra.
With thanks to Sarah and Hugh for helping scoop the tickets back in March, to Mrs. Hebden for her support, and to the boarding houses for supporting our late return.
