The Glimmerglass Festival family is mourning the loss of architect Hugh Hardy, who died last Thursday. Hardy designed the Glimmerglass Festival’s Alice Busch Opera Theater which capitalized on the company’s rural surroundings while providing audience members the opportunity to experience intimate performances of opera and musical theater.

Hardy was a founding partner of Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer Associates, which received more than 100 national design awards for its work.
