11.00 am: 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.

1.30 pm: Vixen

Janácek’s The Cunning Little Vixen will make its Glimmerglass debut in a new production directed by E. Loren Meeker with a new English translation by Kelley Rourke. The production will be choreographed by Eric Sean Fogel.

In this fresh look at Janácek’s woodland fable, a forester, sung by Eric Owens, stumbles upon a vixen cub and takes her home. Both have their assumptions about the world challenged. Heidi Stober will sing the role of The Vixen. Stober is known for her performances at the Metropolitan Opera, San Francisco Opera, Deutsche Oper Berlin, and more.

5.00 pm: Tahiti

Leonard Bernstein's one-act send-up of the suburban American dream features members of the Young Artists Program.
