Dame Jane Glover’s long relationship with Chicago Opera Theater includes benchmark performances of the Mozart/Da Ponte operas and the Monteverdi trilogy. Glover will return for the company’s 50th anniversary season to lead a comic masterpiece by Benjamin Britten — another composer with whom she has a special affinity. In advance of performances later this month, Jane Glover joins Oliver to preview Albert Herring. Learn more about Chicago Opera Theater’s upcoming production of Albert Herring HERE.
