Glyndebourne on Tour trailer
This year's Glyndebourne on Tour season includes touring versions two 2014 main house productions, Tom Cairns' production of Verdi's La Traviata, and Frederic Wake-Walker's production of Mozart's La finta giardiniera along with a revival of Jonathan Kent's 2006 touring production of Britten's Turn of the Screw. The tour opens at Glyndebourne on 4 October 2014, before touring to Woking, Norwich, Canterbury, Milton Keynes, Plymouth, Stoke on Trent and Dublin (where they will be visiting for the first time in more than 10 years). 

La Traviata will be conducted by the young German conductor David Afkham with American tenor Zach Borichevsky making his UK debut as Alfredo Germont and Russian soprano Irina Dubrovskaya in the title role. Turn of the Screw is conducted by Leo McFall (McFall conducted Rusalka for Glyndebourne on Tour in 2012) and features Natalya Romaniw as the Governess with Anthony Gregory as Peter Quint, Anne Mason as Mrs Grose and Miranda Keys as Miss Jessel. La finta giardiniera is conducted by Christopher Moulds with a cast including Timothy Robinson, Rosa Feola, Elena Pretorian and Hanna Hipp.

There are six performances of La traviata  and La finta giardiniera for schools, enabling around 9,000 school children to watch live opera, as well as Five Deaths and a Happy Ending an opera for 7 to 10 year olds.
