Watch 'Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg' from Glyndebourne [VIDEO]
This privately owned opera house nestled in East Sussex, 40 miles south of London, regularly screens its summer productions in cinemas but this is the first time an opera house has collaborated with a newspaper.
Since the Guardian has generously enabled embedding, we've taken the opportunity to make our own Culture Monster presentation of the opera.
The video will be available until July 3, so feel free to dip in and out or fast-forward to the good parts as the spirit moves until then.
If you're going for complete immersion, clear your calendar for the next five hours, hook your computer up to your stereo and television and click the box next to the volume to enjoy full-screen goodness.
Act 1 (1 hour 30 minutes)
Act 2 (1 hour 2 minutes)
Act 3 (2 hours 10 min)
