Listen on Demand: Michael Capasso
Opera impresario Michael Capasso, in town to direct Toledo Opera's "La Boheme," talks with WGTE's Brad Cresswell about opera composer Giacomo Puccini and his three great loves: beautiful women, duck hunting, and music (in that order).
Capasso is founder and General Director of New York's reknowned Dicapo Opera Theatre, a professional, non-profit company that produces repertoire ranging from the traditional to the rarely performed, with at least one 20th-century work each season.
