Conducted by Houston Grand Opera’s Principal Guest Conductor Eun Sun Kim and directed by frequent HGO collaborator E. Loren Meeker, The Impresario shares a double bill with Bon Appetit!

Mozart’s brief opera—featuring warring divas, a show within a show, and one of the composer’s greatest overtures—gets an English-language retelling from playwright Jim Luigs, the man behind hysterical musical Das Barbecü, based on Wagner’s Ring cycle. The work’s drama-filled auditions take place, appropriately enough, over Zoom.

Renowned mezzo-soprano and HGO Studio alumna Jamie Barton delights as Julia Child in Lee Hoiby’s one-woman opera Bon Appetit! Based on an episode of Child’s TV program, The French Chef, this short, critically acclaimed confection, directed by HGO Studio alumnus Ryan McKinny, brings audiences into the chef’s storied kitchen as she bakes a chocolate cake.

Part of the Sarah & Ernest Butler Performance Series at the Blue Starlite Drive-In. Produced by the Houston Grand Opera.
