Die Fledermaus’s Joyce El-Khoury

Joyce was featured in the Georgia Straight in Vancouver, BC, in advance of her performances as Rosalinde with Vancouver Opera. She talks about the importance of the anti-bullying movement, her past and her career.
Here’s a snippet:
“For El-Khoury, of course, singing was the way out.

That’s where I was untouchable,” she recalls.”
