The 2013 Castleton Festival--the Festival's 5th season--spans most of the month of July. Along with The Girl of the Golden West, Poulenc, Mahler, Britten, and Tchaikovsky, is Verdi's Otello. Castleton favorite Joyce El-Khoury is Desdemona. Classical WETA morning host David Ginder chats with her about the critical importance of trust during performance, her personal attraction to the Suor Angelica role a few seasons ago, and the importance of a coach.
Inspired by the film Latino Americans, we decided to seek out a local perspective on the Latino experience in our community with our weta.org Digital Extras. Luis Araya immigrated to Arlington, Virginia from Bolivia in 1966, when very few Latinos lived in the county. He reflects on the changes he has seen over the years and the influence of Latinos in Arlington today.Watch now →
