Glimmerglass Festival

Attend a Glimmerglass Festival Event

If you’re looking for a unique and eclectic experience, few places match the Cooperstown opera house. Beginning with the 2011 season, Glimmerglass Opera became The Glimmerglass Festival. The company continues its tradition of four new fully staged productions, including three operas and one work of American musical theater, performed with a full orchestra, large cast, and no sound amplification. These four productions are supplemented by special performances, concerts, lectures, and symposiums throughout the season. The Glimmerglass Festival continues to attract an international audience to the scenic Cooperstown area, where the talent of singers, directors, designers, and staff from around the world converges in the Alice Busch Opera Theater to produce world-class opera and music theater.
