EXPERIENCE THE WORLD OF REPERTORY OPERA
The Glimmerglass Festival offers summer internships in production, administration and artistic administration. Our well-known internship program provides a unique combination of practical, work and educational programs, each designed to further professional growth.
Our interns join the program after gaining an interest and some experience through their academic studies. Interns work directly with noted professionals under the guidance of supervisors and staff from many of the best theaters, opera companies and schools in the nation. Interns are engaged for a period of 7 – 18 weeks, with some positions beginning as early as April.
Each intern will receive a meal allowance of $225.00 per week and free housing.
