Joyce Castle as Augusta In Baby Doe
Mark Kiryluk
"Castle's Augusta in Doe is superb...the Augusta of mezzo-soprano Joyce Castle is the definitive show-stopper of this production. Castle has every nuance of the role clasped in a fist of iron, and she knows how to command your sympathy for this character of missed opportunities. Vocally persuasive, emotionally compelling, this is a portrayal for the books - one in which every note and every gesture is so right that you want to salute her." The Seattle Times Joyce Castle as Augusta Tabor in Central City Opera's production of The Ballad of Baby Doe commemorating the 50th anniversary of the opera's premiere.
