Monkey and Francine
In The City Of Tigers Produced by Houston Grand Opera

This is a non-ticketed performance.

This performance will not be livestreamed.

Monkey and Francine in the City of Tigers, an HGO-commissioned opera from Kamala Sankaram and David Johnston, follows the adventure of Monkey and his brilliant sister Francine. At first, Monkey dismisses his sister as just a girl who reads books, while Francine is constantly annoyed at her brother’s antics. The rivalry between the two simmers, but they have to learn to work together if they’re going to defeat the hungry Crocodile and the greedy Lord of the Tigers. Drawing from a mix of musical styles from Bollywood, opera, and Ethiopian jazz, this is a fun, innovative opera the whole family will enjoy.
