Background: Glyndebourne, Sussex, is hard work for the 25th anniversary of its opera festival - a three months season - starting May 28.
Glyndebourne ranks among the leading musical festivals in the world. The founder, John Christie built the opera house in the gardens of his ancestral Tudor home.
Here gardners are busy with the plants which will soon be making a summer show in the grounds. Opera General Manager Moaran Captain said (S-O-F) preparations are going on 24 hours in a day.
Glyndebourne hides much of its work from public view: in the wardrobe rooms, scene docks and carpenters shops preparations are reaching a climax.
