Danielle de Niese and Gus Christie request the pleasure of your company at Glyndebourne,
where they are Lord and Lady of the Estate. The renowned American soprano (and Festival
Napa Valley favorite) and Glyndebourne Executive Chairman will be your hosts for two operas
as part of a fabulous five-night stay in London for you and a guest, with unforgettable excursions
and chauffeured transportation.

With two VIP passes to the 2023 Glyndebourne Festival Opera, co-founded by Christie’s
grandfather, the two of you will enjoy all the perks of being the couple’s guests as well as
entrée to two days of events and performances. On one of the days, you’ll experience
a traditional Glyndebourne picnic, with a hamper full of freshly prepared local treats and
refreshments. The other day includes dinner at Middle & Over Wallop, the culinary gem of
Glyndebourne featuring modern British cuisine by the Galvin Brothers.

In between, a visit to Royal Ascot will put you in the heart of British horse racing, where
you’ll take in the Sport of Kings on grounds leased from the Crown Estate — and a favorite
destination of Queen Elizabeth II. London is famous for fine food and wine, and a visit to one
of the city’s famed restaurants will be a highlight of your luxurious London stay.

Designed for one couple
