Farewell 2010 – here’s our end of the year round up of Ballet and Opera.

After a quick poll on Twitter earlier today, Glyndebourne’s triumphant Billy Budd won the stand out opera for you this year. Notable mentions should also go to WNO’s Meistersinger and our very own Tannhäuser and Adriana Lecouvreur. For ballet, Liam Scarlett’s stunning Asphodel Meadows was an overwhelming favourite. More highlights below:
