The Glimmerglass Festival’s commitment to community continues to evolve with our brand new outdoor performance series, Lyrics on the Lawn. Offered to the public and at no cost, Lyrics on the Lawn is a series of outdoor concerts that will take place one hour before performances of Pagliacci.

Get to know the characters of Pagliacci with the help of Holly Adams, The Glimmerglass Festival’s “clown-in-residence,” as she guides audiences on a captivating journey through several scenes that will introduce the audience to traditional commedia dell’arte characters. Each performance will follow a similar story arc with the unique twist of rotating casts and music selections directly from our Young Artists.

Packed with humorous antics and lively music, you won’t want to miss your chance to witness the magic of opera in a beautiful setting! These 40-minute concerts are weather permitting. Attendees are encouraged to bring chairs or blankets for seating on the lawn.
