New rehearsal hall at Glimmerglass Opera House

By GARY LIBERATORE

SPRINGFIELD, N.Y. (WKTV) - Those who perform at the Glimmerglass Opera House in Otsego County now have a new place to call home when they are rehearsing.

Glimmerglass has built two new rehearsal halls on Route 20 in Warren, just a few miles up the road from the opera house.

Each hall provides the same dimensions as the actual opera stage.

The project was funded by the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York, which provides financing for not-for-profits that help better the state.

"Since the inception of the company we have been rehearsing in schools, churches and places that were not specifically made to be rehearsal halls," said Francesca Zambello, Glimmerglass Festival Director.

The 2013 season at Glimmerglass is underway with a total of five different operas being presented.
