Premier Giving Travel Program


Austin Opera invites you to visit the Glyndebourne Festival and Garsington Opera
July 7 – 13, 2020

Austin Opera has partnered with Act 1 Tours, an NYC-based travel company specializing in destination opera, to plan this exclusive trip. Rates are $7,450 per person double occupancy; $1,050 single supplement. The registration deadline is January 10, 2020. We’ll have the opportunity to attend two operas at Garsington Opera: a new production of Dvořák’s Rusalka and, just in time to celebrate the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth, we’ll enjoy the composer’s only opera, Fidelio. At the Glyndebourne Festival we will take in Poulenc’s Dialouges of the Carmelites and Mozart’s singspiel Abduction from the Seraglio.
