Every year since 2005, Glimmerglass Opera has collaborated with the Fenimore Art Museum and the Baseball Hall of Fame to sponsor the Cabin Fever Film Series. The film screenings are free and open to the public and run on Fridays in January and February at either the Fenimore Art Museum Auditorium or the National Baseball Hall of Fame Grandstand Theater. The series is meant to provide a fun evening out to community members during the cold winter months.
We kicked the series off this past Friday with Glimmerglass Opera’s choice, “A Soldier’s Daughter Never Cries.” We picked this film because it features countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo, who will sing the title role in Tolomeo this summer.
Anthony sings Mozart’s “Tell me what love is” in the movie, which was released in 1998.
Anthony is an alumnus of Glimmerglass Opera’s Young American Artists Program and performed the role of The Sorceress in last summer’s Dido and Aeneas. He was also a Grand Finals Winner in the 2009 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. Read more about Anthony at his website, and hear him singing “Stille amare” from Tolomeo more recently.
