The 2024 Festival will open with Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance in a vibrant production directed by renowned choreographer Seán Curran and conducted by Music Director Joseph Colaneri, featuring set and costume designs by James Schuette and lighting by Robert Wierzel.
A Gilbert & Sullivan classic, combining soaring vocal lines and slapstick comedy, returns to Glimmerglass for the first time in nearly 20 years. This colorful, family-friendly production features elegant Victorian ladies and an aristocratic band of pirates stuck in perpetual adolescence. Curran’s hit production from Opera Theatre of Saint Louis kicks it up a notch at Glimmerglass with the addition of a corps of professional dancers.
10 performances | July 22m, 27, 30m; August 1, 4m, 9, 13m, 15, 17m, 19m
