SIR,—I do not wish to join in the discussion on the catering arrangements at Glyndebourne; but, having recently made my first visit of the season, I feel bound to protest vigorously at the fact that they have changed the curtain. They used to have a strikingly lovely one, with a free-flowing design in blue, gold and grey. This has now vanished, and is replaced by what looks like a velvet bedspread, in a singularly virulent shade of sub-olive green. I hope the old one is merely at the cleaners, and would be glad to be assured on this point by Mr. Moran Caplat.—Yours faithfully, BERNARD LEVIN London, WC1
