This week on Curated, an improv troupe masters the art of long form storytelling, a writer and comedian finds humor in Aspen living and a professor from the University of Colorado at Boulder breaks down the behavioral psychology of humor across cultures.

Asadour Santourian interviews conductor Robert Spano, director Ed Berkeley, and singers Tamara Wilson (Aida), Brian Mulligan (Amonasro), Morris Robinson (Ramfis) about the August 7 production of Aida.

  Host Chris Mohr talked with Aspen Music Festival and School President and CEO Alan Fletcher as well as Asadour Santourian, Vice President for Artistic Administration and Artistic Advisor, about the entire 2015 AMFS season. Then we chat with cellist David Finckel and pianist Wu Han about their recital (which opens this year's Festival) and their work with students here.
