Handel and Glyndebourne

2 May to 28 October 2007

It has only been during the 20th and 21st centuries that opera houses have re-discovered the attractions of Handel's operas and oratorios. After Handel's death in 1759, there were no staged performances of Handel's works until 1920. Glyndebourne, amongst many other opera companies and festivals, has been part of the re-emergence of staging Handel productions. This small exhibition at Handel House will explore the four works that Glyndebourne has presented at their home in Sussex, using images, costumes, props, scores, programmes and music.
