WVIA's Peter Wynne speaks with Carol Castel, artistic director of the Delaware Valley Opera in Narrowsburg, N.Y. about the Summer 2013 season, titled, "Mischievous, Magnificent Mozart!"
The hamlet of Narrowsburg, New York, is situated on the banks of the Delaware River, in the area between the Catskill and Pocono mountain ranges. Centered in the Upper Delaware River corridor, it is an area surrounded by rolling hills, forests and many lakes. Narrowsburg overlooks the Big Eddy, a popular fishing spot and the deepest point in the Delaware River. It also overlooks the Narrowsburg Bridge, which crosses the river at its most narrow point (hence the name, Narrowsburg).
