Soprano Joyce El-Khoury returns to the Castleton Festival to reprise her role as Lauretta in Gianni Schicchi, and to make her debut as Mimi in Puccini's La Boheme. A graduate of both the Met Opera's Lindemann Young Artist Development Program and the Academy of Vocal Arts, Miss El-Khoury has already made her Met Opera debut as Frasquita in Carmen and Esmerelda in The Bartered Bride under James Levine.
