THREE DAY VISIT TO GLYNDEBOURNE OPERA
Tuesday 23 October 2018

A very successful three day visit to take in a performance of "La Traviata" was enjoyed by some 48 members. Staying at a hotel on the sea front at Eastbourne gave us an ideal base from which to visit Charlton House Farm, the out of town residence of the "Bloomsberry Set".

Later, on the same day came one of those experiences of a lifetime. Glyndebourne itself was glorious, made all the better by our having a clear blue sky and warm sunshine. The interior of the opera house was spectacular and the performance was unforgettable. The role of Violetta was sung by an outstanding young Arnenian/American woman named Mane Goloyan. Her technique was flawless and coupled with brilliant acting ability.

The following day, on the way back from Eastbourne we made our way to Charrtwell, the home of Winston Churchill. Many of us haad been there in the past, but there had been many changes which enriched the experience. Again, we weere blessed with bright sunshine, rounding off a most enjoyable tour.
