The internationally-acclaimed Glimmerglass Festival is the second largest producer of opera in New York State, after the Metropolitan Opera. Under the leadership of celebrated stage director Francesca Zambello, the Festival’s eight-week summer season features 40-plus performances of four innovatively-staged productions of opera and classic Broadway in rotating repertory, along with concerts by celebrity guest artists, lounge-style musical showcases, a lecture series with esteemed scholars and an opera produced for and starring youth. The company is also a training ground for future professionals through its Young Artists and Summer Internship Programs. The Festival is located just outside Cooperstown, New York on Otsego Lake, christened Glimmerglass by the 19th century writer James Fennimore Cooper for its shimmering beauty.


The performance is made possible with support from Gene Kaufman and Terry Eder-Kaufman.
