Stephen Langridge speaks to Classical Music about directing the first ever environmentally sustainable Ring Cycle, his extensive work in learning and participation, and his move to Glyndebourne.


“Opera represents a spiritual gym… when an opera works, your visual cortex is ignited by what you’re seeing, your intellect is activated… your empathy is exercised by caring for people who don’t exist, by imagining something that’s not real. And all this is delivered through music.”
