24 Jul Great success as Magda in Puccini’s La Rondine
In June/July, Joyce performed the role of Magda in Puccini’s La Rondine with Des Moines Metro Opera company. Follow @DMOpera on Twitter.
“Joyce El-Khoury looks like the glass of champagne she carries into the opening party in Puccini’s “La Rondine,” which runs through July 14 at the Des Moines Metro Opera. Her dress is a concoction of frothy gold lace layered over peach silk, with just enough sequins to catch the light as she descends a staircase into her character’s opulent Paris salon. The woman knows how to make an entrance.”
