The Glimmerglass Festival

Francesca Zambello continues the mixture of works that she has produced during her tenure as director of the Glimmerglass Festival in Cooperstown, New York. This summer it will be possible to see and hear Camelot, The Flying Dutchman by Wagner, Verdi’s only comic opera before Falstaff, Un giorno di regno (translated as King for a Day), and a double bill of Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater. The Festival will also feature a performance of a new, expanded version of David Lang’s The Little Match Girl Passion. Based on Hans Christian Andersen’s story of a poor child who freezes to death while selling matches on the street, Lang’s choral work won the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for music.
