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. She spoke with Classical WETA's Deb Lamberton about what happens when you have a role like Mimi, which requires you to both cough and sing.
