Founded in 1975 by Peter Macris and the committee of community members, the festival aims to combine the matured and the new on its engaging stage for both its productions and performers. Located in the Alice Busch Opera Theater on Otsego Lake near Cooperstown of New York, the annual summer season usually consists of four operas performed in rotating repertory. As the second-largest summer opera festival in the United States, Glimmerglass is famous for staging new and rare works, many of which have been co-produced with the New York City Opera.
