“First time opera”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

Easy access. Great seat assignments. Noah Stewart. Moving. Strong voice. I am going to love attending next season now that I had a taste of opera this summer. Located in Cooperstown, there is so much to do . Swim at Glimmerglass Park on Otsego Lake. Doubleday Field. Baseball Hall of Fame. Farmers Museum. Antiques. Shops. and Opera.

“Consistenly great performances”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

It really doesnt matter what you go to see. it is always a great show, with great performer. this is the first year in about 5 that I have missed. If you are in the area you can find tickets at a reasonable price usually. ask about first time discount!

“wonderful productions/intimate atmosphere”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

My husband and I have been to 3 Glimmerglass productions to date and have enjoyed each one thoroughly. It is not your run-of-the-mill opera company. They really try to stretch the opera boundaries. The opera house has an extremely intimate atmosphere while still holding a large number of people. Bring a paper fan though, it can get hot and stuff in there!!

“One of the best summer operas in the country”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Glimmerglass has wonderful talent and is in an idyllic setting on the west side of Otsego Lake. It is now Glimmerglass Festival Theatre—a mix of opera and Broadway musicals.

“The Finest”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Great opera in a bucolic setting. This is a must for Opera lovers. The program is varied and it is summer opera so the staging may not be traditional. Still, for voices and overall quality it can't be beaten.
