The Glimmerglass Festival in Cooperstown, New York, presents four shows each summer in rotating repertoire with both veteran and upcoming singers in notably adventurous productions.

Two of this year’s offerings, Verdi’s youthful opera “King For A Day” and the venerable Lerner and Loewe musical “Camelot,” were handsomely mounted, energetically directed and artfully sung in what is one of America’s most inviting and well-designed small opera theaters.

Baritone Alex Lawrence, 29, a Weston High School graduate, is Belfiore, the imposter Polish king in Verdi’s madcap “King For A Day.”

In “Camelot,” tenor Jack Noseworthy, a graduate of Lynn English High School and Boston Conservatory, gives a compelling, vibrant performance as King Arthur’s evil bastard son Mordred. Boston is most definitely in the Glimmerglass house.
