ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding, and rewarding, programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Wonderful program, knowledgeable and personable leader and great music. Beautiful location too. This was my first Road Scholar opera festival, but many attendees return year after year. Back-stage tours, talks by producers, singers, tech folks all very interesting. Food was delicious too, often picnic style on the Glimmerglass campus. Great value and well-run. I'd recommend it for anyone into music, opera, musical theater or stagecraft.

If you love opera in a beautiful setting in the southern tier of New York state, don't miss attending one of the programs at the Glimmerglass Festival in Cooperstown NY. For me, it was well worth the long drive from Baltimore. Bob Greenfield

Quality program. If you enjoy the company of like minded travelers and pursuing an intense festival musical experience...go for it. See you there next summer

If you are an opera novice or expert, don't miss the Glimmerglass Festival! You will hear and see a varied program, as well as learn what goes on behind-the-scenes.
