US opera festival goes outdoorsmain
Glimmerglass Festival is the first major US event to roll out a summer season.
Located in Cooperstown, New York, it has announced plans for an outdoor stage built on the Festival grounds.
Francesca Zambello, its director, says. ‘While this move outdoors is primarily for the health and safety of our company members, audience members and community, it is in harmony with what people love about Glimmerglass — innovative art and performances in a beautiful location.’
The Festival will present 90-minute bursts of opera and musical theatre with, among others, Amanda Castro, Denyce Graves, Gregory Kunde, Isabel Leonard, Latonia Moore, Eric Owens, Michael Mayes and Alexandria Shiner. The season will run July 15 to August 17.
