After Robert Ward left The Eastman School of Music in the 1930’s, he went on to study with Aaron Copland.  Ward crafted a musical language that would earn him a 1962 Pulitzer Prize in Music for his opera The Crucible, based on Arthur Miller’s iconic play. (Ward’s son says he remembers finding his parents unexpectedly drinking champagne in the kitchen; that’s how he found out his father had won a Pulitzer.)

This year the Glimmerglass Festival is offering a fresh take on the dark tale of revenge and paranoia.
