Opera 101: Supertitles

Can’t speak Italian? We understand.

The Alice Busch Opera Theater offers supertitles for every opera production at The Glimmerglass Festival. Lyrics are projected above the stage in easy-to-read English text.

In addition to translating foreign language productions from the original French, Italian, German and others into English, the supertitle system is used even when the opera is sung in English – to enhance your enjoyment and understanding of our performances.
