Synopsis: Traces the history of the Glyndebourne Festival Opera, looks at notable productions, and lists operas that had their British premieres at Glyndebourne

From Library Journal: In the early 1930s, Glyndebourne founder John Christie was inspired by the opera companies of Germany and his belief that England could produce opera of the highest quality. A dedicated amateur, he built the theater, hired a conductor and a director, and funded the company. After World War II, Christie helped develop corporate sponsorship for the theaterAa unique approach at that time. Many other things distinguished the company, e.g., lengthy rehearsal periods to develop a strong ensemble and a beautiful country setting. As with so many great ventures, the early years are the most interesting; Jolliffe writes inspirationally about Christie's bold single-mindedness, his struggles to attract first-rate talent, the camaraderie, the rivalries, and the first, extraordinary performances. With the exception of Marcus Binney's Glyndebourne: Building a Vision (Thames & Hudson, 1994), which focuses on the rebuilding of the opera house, earlier books on this subject are out of print. This well-researched and readable history will be welcomed by opera fans everywhere.AKate McCaffrey, Onondaga Cty. P.L., NY
