An operatic thriller from the age of Hitchcock, Samuel Barber’s Pulitzer Prize-winning first opera Vanessa boasts one of the 20th century’s most beautiful scores. Abandoned by her lover Anatol, Vanessa retreats from the world, waiting and hoping with only her mother and her niece Erika for company. But when, 20 years later, Anatol’s handsome young son arrives unexpectedly, he shatters the calm of this shuttered household of women. Past and present love collides, and the aftershocks threaten to destroy them all. Seldom performed in the UK, this is a rare opportunity to see Barber’s heart-breaking domestic drama as Olivier Award-winning director Keith Warner makes his much-anticipated Glyndebourne debut with this production.
