GL!MMERATA: 2013 Glimmerglass Festival Spring Gala


The Glimmerglass Festival, the Cooperstown-based opera and musical theater company, hosted its annual spring gala April 10 at the Metropolitan Club. The event was chaired by Patricia Chadwick and Nina Lesavoy and celebrated the company’s Young Artists Program, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this season, and its Summer Internship Program. About $500,000 was raised for the acclaimed training programs.


The Young Artist Program is an apprentice program for emerging singers, coach/accompanists and directors. The company annually receives more than 1,000 applications, and about 40 positions are filled. The highly competitive Summer Internship Program offers close to 60 internships in production and administration.


More than 320 guests filled the Great Hall of the Metropolitan Club for cocktail hour. After mingling with Glimmerglass Festival artists such as Jay Hunter Morris, who is also set to sing Siegfried in the Metropolitan Opera’s upcoming production, bass-baritone Eric Owens and tenor Noah Stewart, guests traveled into the West Lounge for a 40-minute performance by Glimmerglass artists past and future who presented a mix of music from art song and opera to musical theater.


Noah Stewart and Nadine Sierra began with a performance of “E il sol dell’anima” from Verdi’s Rigoletto. David Pittsinger, who joins the company this summer as King Arthur in the musical Camelot, performed a moving rendition of “This nearly was mine” from South Pacific, and Eric Owens performed “Infelice!... e tuo credevi” from Verdi’s Ernani. 2013 Glimmerglass Festival Artists in Residence Julie and Nathan Gunn and co-chairs of the event performed next. The couple stepped to the mic to speak about their upcoming engagement at the Festival.


“I am thrilled to be working with the young artists this coming summer,” Julie Gunn said. As Glimmerglass Artists in Residence, Julie and Nathan Gunn will mentor the emerging young singers that will join the program
this summer.


With Julie Gunn at the piano, Nathan Gunn, who will sing the role of Lancelot in Camelot, performed “Make Believe” from Show Boat with Andriana Chuchman.


Klea Blackhurst then sang “There's No Business Like Show Business” from Annie Get Your Gun with pianist Michael Rice. The Glimmerglass Festival’s 2013 season includes Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman, so the next two performers presented works by Wagner. Richard Cox performed "Wintersturme" from Wagner's Die Walküre. Jennifer Check closed the program with “Dich, teure Halle” from Wagner’s Tannhäuser. Director of the Young Artists Program Michael Heaston accompanied on the piano.


The dinner that followed concluded with a brief auction led by
Simon Teakle, the owner of Simon Teakle Fine Jewels with 20 years of experience at Christie’s.


The evening as guests joined the Young Glimmerglass Group, the company’s young professionals group chaired by Pauline Eveillard, Kristen Kovner and Sage Mehta, which was already enjoying desserts and dancing to the Peter Duchin Orchestra.


The Glimmerglass Festival 2013 season runs July 6 through August 24. New productions of Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman; Lerner and Loewe’s Camelot, Verdi’s King for a Day and Passions, a double bill of David Lang’s the little match girl passion and Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater, run in rotation. The mainstage productions are supplemented by special performances, concerts and lectures throughout the season. Tickets start at just $26 and youth tickets (ages 6-18) start at $10 when accompanied by an adult. Call (607) 547-2255 or visit www.glimmerglass.org  for tickets and additional information
