Wolf Trap opera's 2016 summer season begins with a Benjamin Britten masterpiece--The Rape of Lucretia. Performances of the chamber opera are June 10, 12, 15, and 18. Classical WETA morning host David Ginder chats with Lucretia conductor Craig Kier about how Britten masterfully tells a difficult story on the opera stage, how chamber opera is at least as dramatic as Puccini and Verdi, and about the informative DC-area-wide Lucretia Project.
