4.00 pm: Odyssey

With music by Ben Moore and libretto by Kelley Rourke, this action-packed retelling of a hero's epic journey homeward features the Glimmerglass Youth Chorus and members of the Young Artists Program.

7.30 pm: Barber Of Seville

Rossini’s comic bel canto masterpiece The Barber of Seville will be presented in a production directed by Francesca Zambello and conducted by Glimmerglass Festival Music Director Joseph Colaneri. With its famed overture that inspired the appropriately named cartoon “Rabbit of Seville” from Looney Tunes, the opera tells the story of Count Almaviva, a young nobleman who allies with Figaro, the titular barber, in order to woo Rosina. She is the mysterious ward of the elderly and foolish Dr. Bartolo who plans to marry her himself. Laughs and hilarity ensue as Figaro and the Count scheme against their adversaries.
