ANNA BOLENA 1968 Milla Andrew as Anna

Guy Gravett photographed his first opera, Mozart’s ‘Le Nozze di Figaro’ in 1951 and took on the official role of house photographer in 1955. His meticulous work, both on and off stage, captured singers, conductors, directors and designers alike providing a wealth of imagery which was much admired and ensured his close relationship with Glyndebourne until his death in 1996.
