King for a Day: Multimedia

July 21 - August 24

The Glimmerglass Festival will celebrate Giuseppe Verdi's 200th birthday with a new production of his seldom seen comic opera, King for a Day (Un giorno di regno). Verdi's second opera centers on a royal replacement who, in addition to serving as a decoy for the king, effects the happy coupling of two young lovers and secures a pretty widow as his own bride.
