It's never too early (Glyndebourne 2016)

Apparently, you can't be too organized. I was rather suprised yesterday afternoon when an email popped into my inbox from Glyndebourne with details of the 2016 festival. Usually this comes on the last night of the festival. Just the sort of thing to wipe out my concentration.
I fear six visits will be needed.
The revivals of Mesitersinger (Gerald Finley in it)and Midsummer Night's Dream were hardly a surprise. Figaro and the Cunning Little Vixen also return.
Only two new productions - but in a year with Pickard leaving and the scope of Wagner, this is perhaps wise. Seville with Danni and Alessandro Corbelli in it and Berlioz Béatrice et Bénédict. 
Next Feb, there will be a community opera Nothing and the tour will include Butterlfy and Don G. 2017 Festival (if you can think that far ahead) will include Hamlet.
Heaps more information here, so you may start planning your picnic.
