I've been to more operas than I'd like to remember since my mother is a singer, and I can say the Glimmerglass production of The Barber of Seville was the most fun I've ever had at the opera. The sets were bright, creative, and modern, and the performers were good singers and engaging. The setting is also unique and casual. Highly recommend even to those who might not normally enjoy opera.

Set in the beautiful hills of central NY, this is a perfect destination for Opera lovers! The quality of the productions is excellent, with talented professionals in the lead roles. Sets are beautiful. The ambiance is casual and not study like in some Urban opera theaters. I will definitely come again, and I have to drive from Philadelphia to get here.

I saw a full-orchestra production of “West Side Story” here that was pretty great. The theater is in a beautiful location, and it seems like they do a great job both putting on interesting shows and bringing up talented new performers.

Grand Opera in the country. Beautiful grounds, great artists, interesting and varied repertoire, an intimate theater, great acoustics. It all adds up to a wonderful Opera festival. Francesca Zambello gets a "10" in my book.

Outstanding quality of music, wonderful singers.Beautiful setting. It was quite hot in the balcony on a late July afternoon. also, it would be nice if they could do something about the bathrooms. There are always very long lines to get to the bathrooms at intermission.
