Fisher Center for the Performing Arts on Friday, July 26th.</p><p>Thaddeus and SummerScape Opera producer, Susanna Meyer join us to tell us more.</p><p> Tue, 23 Jul 2013 15:35:00 +0000 Sarah LaDuke 69829 at http://wamc.org Taneyev's "Oresteia" at Bard SummerScape The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller http://wamc.org/post/song-achilles-madeline-miller <p>Joe Donahue speaks with Madeline Miller about her book, <em>The Song of Achilles: A Novel</em>.</p> Wed, 21 Mar 2012 17:38:12 +0000 Joe Donahue 35116 at http://wamc.org The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
