By Renée Peck Take a Cab Ride with us! NolaVie gets up-close and personal with local notables in this new series of back-seat video interviews sponsored by TaxiCabApp. Ride along and eavesdrop as New Orleanians talk about the city they love and reveal its secrets. For our first set of Cab Rides, we rode shotgun with personalities drawn from the city?s music scene. Today, New Orleans mezzo-soprano Givonna Joseph, founder and director of OperaCreole, heads from Marigny Opera House, where her company often performs, to Xavier University, where they rehearse. The movie's lovely audio of Belle Nuit from Tales of Hoffman is sung by Givonna and her daughter, Aria Mason, co-founder of OperaCreole.
