Now in its 24th season, Washington Concert Opera specializes in presenting lesser-known operatic masterpieces in a concert setting without sets, props, or costumes. The emphasis is on the music, and with only two performances per season, Washington Concert Opera fans know each production is a one-shot opportunity to see both rising stars, and major artists close up on the Lisner Auditorium stage. WCO Artistic Director and Conductor Antony Walker talks with Classical WETA's Deb Lamberton about the current season, which features Francesco Cilea's "Adriana Lecouvurer" on Sunday, October 24th, 2010, and Jules Massenet's "Werther." Sunday, May 22, 2011.
