The Glimmerglass Festival provides such a unique and intimate experience, and this summer we offer even more opportunities to experience opera and music theater up close and personal with the new Meet Me at the Pavilion series,special Q&As and ShowTalks.

In addition to all Glimmerglass has offers, the Cooperstown area is host to many activities — for both the nature and the art lover.

The village is set on the nine-mile, pristine Otsego Lake, referred to as “Glimmerglass” in James Fenimore Cooper’s The Leatherstocking Tales. A one-stoplight village, the area is a step back in time, with historic buildings, a charming Main Street and quaint bed & breakfasts.

Enjoy the lake with kayaks or canoes rented from Sam Smith’s Boatyard, or hike through Glimmerglass State Park on the northern end of the lake.

Before a matinee , try antiquing in the many shops or barns nestled in the countryside or have a taste of local fare – think maple syrup and organic produce – at the Cooperstown Farmers’ Market or one of the plentiful roadside stands.

Prior to a performance of John Musto and Mark Campbell’s Later the Same Evening based on five Edward Hopper paintings, be sure to catch Fenimore Art Museum’s exhibition A Window Into Edward Hopper.

Of course, join us at the Festival for a matinee and a Meet Me at the Pavilion concert (only $10!).

We are very much looking forward to the summer, so we’ve posted this short video as a teaser.
