Britten becomes dispirited

One day, at the end of our Glyndebourne season I was chatting with Ben and he told me he didn’t think we would be invited to Glyndebourne again because the owner, John Christie, liked Donizetti, Rossini and Mozart etc. but was averse to modern music, and he had let it be known that he didn’t like “Albert Herring”.   Ben was right, we were never asked there again. He was very sensitive and I could see he was most upset.
