Those record attendances? They just got bettermain
Last week, I reported that Glyndebourne had totted up a 99.18 ticket sale for the current season, ending tonight.
Tonight, Glyndebourne chairman Gus Christie announced at the end of The Turn of the Screw that the final tally was 99.3 percent. Must have been a late rush at the turnstiles.
He also revealed that 40,000 watched the live online screening of Britten’s opera via the Guardian website, an event that actually trended on twitter.
