Details:  This is the first time that Berlioz’s 1862 work, a sublime take on Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, has been staged at Glyndebourne. Expect wit to merge with fleet-footed Rondos and Trios as the screwball relationship between Shakespeare’s sparkiest lovers unfurls.  The production is directed by Laurent Pelly and conducted by Antonello Manacorda, while the cast is led by Stéphanie d’Oustrac (Carmen) and Paul Appleby (who made his Glyndebourne debut last year in Barrie Kosky’s superb production of Saul) as the sharp-tongued duo.
