          With this new production by Frederic Wake-Walker, in his Glyndebourne Festival debut, La finta giardiniera (The False Garden-Girl) becomes the ninth and earliest entry in the company’s Mozart canon. At its heart the opera presents seven characters in search of love. Through a process of exploring themselves as much as each other, their inquiry reveals what is real and what is ‘finta’. Christiane Karg, Joélle Harvey and Wolfgang Ablinger-Sperrhacke anchor an expert Mozartean ensemble. Glyndebourne’s new Music Director Robin Ticciati conducts the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. See La finta giardiniera at Glyndebourne Festival 2014 and on Tour 2014
