Glyndebourne: The Untold History

Genre: Documentary
Director(s): Robin Bextor
Actors: Mark Everist

of Blonde in Entfuhrung by Mozart.

His usual am-dramers weren't

available, but he was

recommended the services of a young

soprano from the Carl Rosa

Opera Company called Audrey Mildmay

who came with a tenor colleague.

They came down,

they were paid five guineas

and they were given free board

and lodgings.

They came and took part in this

absolutely hilarious amateur

event in the Organ Room.

The result of that was, of course,

that John fell absolutely

head over heels in love

with his soprano, which, when you

look at her, is not really


because she was absolutely gorgeous.

He was at that time about 50,

a confirmed bachelor.

Anyway, she arrived and he fell

instantly in love with her,

took her upstairs, I think, and

showed her his bedroom and told

her that this was where they would

be sleeping when they were married!

She thought that might be

a proposal, but tried to ignore it.

Indeed, she wrote a letter to him


saying, "Please, dear John, do not

fall in love with me."

But it was a bit late!

He already had.

The story goes that he took her

three times to Rosenkavalier,

the Royal Opera house,

and at each time

the Silver Rose was presented

by Octavian

to Sophie, he proposed to her.

The first two occasions,

she told him,

"I just need a little bit

more time."

On the third occasion, he bought

her a diamond-encrusted brooch

and she simply couldn't refuse!

And the rest is history.

They were married in June

and they went to Germany of course,

to listen to opera -

where else would they go?

So they came back

from their honeymoon,

returned home to Glyndebourne

after this wonderful

trip around Europe and John came up

with the idea of extending

the Organ Room, effectively putting

a stage across the end of the room.
