Contact: Karl Luntta (518) 437-4980

ALBANY, N.Y. (June 16, 2004) -- The University at Albany's Friends of the Libraries will sponsor a summer outing to Glimmerglass Opera on July 18, 2004 for Gilbert and Sullivan’s light opera Patience.

Glimmerglass is a critically acclaimed summer festival known for fresh, innovative productions amid celebrated landscapes. “Everything about Glimmerglass…makes opera what it should be but so rarely is: intimate, provocative, utterly involving,” said The New York Times.

First-floor seats and balcony seats are available. Prior to the show, the group will brunch at The Otesaga Hotel.

The cost of the outing, including transportation on an air-conditioned bus, brunch, and the performance, is $125.50 for first-floor seating and $110.50 for balcony seating. For reservations, contact Friends of the Libraries board member Del Cummings, 1976 Curry Road-A104, Schenectady, NY 12303, tel. (518) 356-0377. Reservations are due by July 9, 2004.
