COOPERSTOWN – U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will once again be on hand to speak about her passion for opera and her perspective on law in the arts at The Glimmerglass Festival next July.

The event will be held at 4 p.m. Friday, July 26 at the Festival. Tickets to this event are currently available to subscribers and will go on sale to the general public January 28, 2019.
The 2019 Festival, which runs from July 6 through Aug. 24, will feature new productions of Kern’s Show Boat, Verdi’s La traviata, Corigliano’s The Ghosts of Versailles and the world premiere of Jeanine Tesori and Tazewell Thompson’s Blue. The Festival will also present Britten’s youth opera, Noah’s Flood, and an adaptation of Tchaikovsky’s The Queen of Spades.
