The Strongest of the Strong tells the remarkable true story of Katie Sandwina — a circus strongwoman who defied expectations and went on to help lead the U.S. suffrage movement in the early 1900s.
Katie and her husband Max move from Austria to the U.S., where she joins Barnum and Bailey Circus, becomes a mother, and teams up with Marina, a young journalist, to fight for the voting rights of women.
With an all-female cast, this 2020 HGO commission from composer Faye Chiao and librettist Anton Dudley is an engaging way for students and families to learn about the importance of equal rights.
HGOCo connects Houston Grand Opera’s creative resources with our diverse and vibrant community. The “co” in HGOco stands for company, community, and collaboration. HGOco’s innovative and engaging programs take place throughout the Houston area—in schools, parks, community landmarks, alternative performance spaces, and at the Wortham Theater Center, providing a range of opportunities for Houstonians of all ages to explore, engage, and learn through the inspiring art of opera.
