Check out Daniel Wakin’s July 15 New York Times article about Wagnerian soprano Deborah Voigt’s Broadwayesque turn in Glimmerglass Festival’s production of “Annie Get Your Gun”: http://tinyurl.com/6jogaff. Also in the Cooperstown production: TCO favorite Jake Gardner as Buffalo Bill. And here’s a link to the Times’ review of the show: http://tinyurl.com/3fp4uj9.

Performances continue July 22, 24 and 30 and Aug. 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 20 and 21, in repertory with three other productions. Details: www.glimmerglass.org.

The following are links to Jane Dieckmann’s July 13 Ithaca Times reviews of “Medea” (http://tinyurl.com/3rlr7xk) and “Carmen” (http://tinyurl.com/6zr8ame) at the festival formerly known as Glimmerglass Opera. David Abrams of MusicalCriticism.com also reviewed “Carmen”: here’s the link: http://tinyurl.com/435pfcp. Remember: BAMirror would love to hear about your visit(s) to Glimmerglass this summer.

What did you do in the arts this week?

As a loyal vintage Summer Savoyard, I, of course, attended opening night of the local Gilbert & Sullivan troupe’s delightful production of “Patience” and brought the junior art lover with me. He, in turn, was glad for companionship at the final Harry Potter flick, which we loved. How about you? What did you do in the arts this past week?
