May 24, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio) Wolf Trap is organizing a special streaming event from The Barns at Wolf Trap, "Parody and Satire", on Monday, May 24 at 7:30pm.

Wolf Trap's Discovery Goes Digital will stream performances of two entertaining and touching one-act operas: John Musto's Bastianello and William Bolcom's Lucrezia, both with libretto by Mark Campbell. These operas were recently performed at The Barns at Wolf Trap as part of The Discovery Series, and thanks to a grant from the Altria Group, Inc, opera lovers will be able to watch them from their own home in this one-time-only event.

The streaming event will include entire performances of both operas (sung in English, with subtitles), an artist question-and-answer period that took place after intermission, and the chance for viewers to chat live with the artists during the streaming event.

To tune into the live internet broadcast, go to www.wolftrap.org/discovery by 7:30 pm EDT on Monday, May 24, 2010.
