The Glimmerglass Festival held its 2012 Spring Gala GL!MMERATA! on April 10 at The Metropolitan Club in Manhattan. The glittering evening benefitted the company's Young Artists and Summer Internship programs. See photos from the event below.

The Glimmerglass Festival Young Artists Program is an acclaimed program that provides training and performance experience for talented singers at the beginning of their professional careers. The Festival also offers summer internships in production, administration and artistic administration, providing the opportunity for young professionals and students to experience the fast-paced world of repertory opera and musical theater.

The elegant evening hosted by Glimmerglass Festival Artistic & General Director Francesca Zambello with her partner Faith Gay at her side along with Gala Chairs Patricia Kavanagh & James Grant and Estelle Parsons & her husband Peter Zimroth made great use of the sprawling mansion that houses the club. The festivities kicked off with cocktails in the stately Great Hall. Glimmerglass Managing Director Linda Jackson, the first African American woman to head a major opera company proudly pointed out this year of the over 100 Young Artist Program participants 39 of them are singers and most interestingly 15 are African Americans and 5 are from South Africa.
