Jamie Barton as Adalgisa in Norma

Mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton sings Mahler's Das Lied von der Erde this Sunday at 4:00, and talks about everything from opera directors who have Carmen kill Don Jose -- and other feminist twists -- to her childhoood in Rome Georgia. We also talk with conductor and author Jane Glover, who is teaching conductors this Saturday morning at the Opera Scenes Master Class, and performs Tchaikovsky with cellist Alisa Weilerstein Friday evening August 3. Finally, we chat with Zaray Rodriguez about her upcoming role in Bernstein's Trouble  in Tahiti August 2.

Summer classical music host Chris Mohr is coming back to Aspen. He has loved classical music since he was twelve. “And I owe it all to radio,” Chris explains. “I grew up in a farm town east of Cleveland. Most of the music I heard growing up was Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, and other favorites of my parents.
