The Festival holds seminars for its interns and staff; these cover many subjects, from first aid to resume writing. Today we held a seminar on our production of Aida, which was also open to the Glimmerglass Opera Guild members and those participating in the Center for Continued Adult Learning program. In the photo on the top you can see some of our interns enjoying the seminar; I really enjoy the seeing the joy in our interns’ faces in that shot. The bottom one shows Francesca Zambello congratulating our interns for their hard work this season. During the seminar, Francesca sat down with the designers and choreographer for the production and each described their experience in preparing Aida. These seminars seem to be getting everyone excited for the season to begin.
