Just north of the busy streets of Cooperstown stands the world-class opera house Glimmerglass Festival. Behind Glimmerglass curtains unfolds the extraordinary story of a committed community of musicians, artists, educators and performers, whose efforts helped transform a turkey farm into one of the most celebrated opera houses in the world. The opera presents an annual season along the banks of the magnificent Otsego Lake, which contributes to an unforgettable experience, not only brought by the music emanating from its concert hall, but also by the breathtaking beauty of its surroundings. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7PCNNKlbRlA
