Glimmerglass Festival: Tenor Overboard
All aboard the S.S. Lindoro for a voyage full of high spirits, high notes and a boatload of singers, suitors and a glamorous starlet. In an attempt to foil their father’s plan to choose one of them a husband, two feisty sisters join a singing group en route to Sicily. While on board, they find adventure, love, and a completely new outlook on the battle of the sexes. Famed comic playwright Ken Ludwig (Lend Me A Tenor, Crazy for You) has written a brand new opera filled to the brim with rare Rossini masterpieces. So come aboard for the glittering ride.
Lyrics in Italian and dialogue in English; projected English lyrics.

The 2022 Festival features productions of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s The Sound of Music, originally slated for the summer of 2020. Bizet’s Carmen takes the stage in a new production directed by 2022 Artist in Residence Denyce Graves, followed by the new work Tenor Overboard, weaving some of Rossini’s most spectacular music together in a new comic opera with a book by the famed playwright Ken Ludwig. The next installment of Common Ground, the Festival’s multi-year initiative of new, commissioned works, is a double bill of Kamala Sankaram and Jerre Dye’s Taking Up Serpents, paired with the world premiere one-act Holy Ground, by Damien Geter and Lila Palmer.
