Inside The Arts: Ballet Hispanico Encore, Joplin’s Treemonisha, New Perspectives Arts Experience

Oct 17, 2017

This week on Inside the Arts, diverse voices of Latino choreographers are highlighted in an evening of bold contemporary dance as The New Orleans Ballet Association kicks off its season with Ballet Hispanico. We talk with artistic director Eduardo Vilaro.

Then, an African American opera which fell into obscurity is being staged, as OperaCréole in partnership with Cripple Creek Theatre and New Resonance Orchestra present Scott Joplin's Treemonisha. OperaCréole co-founder and acclaimed mezzo-soprano Givonna Joseph joins us.

And, NEW PERSPECTIVES, an intercultural arts experience explores contemporary visual arts and music of Latin America during National Hispanic Heritage Month.

Airs Tuesdays at 1:00 p.m., Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m., and Thursdays at 8:45 a.m.
