Featuring a gorgeously opulent score, this is French opera at its finest, with soaring duets for the star-crossed lovers, beautiful choral harmonies, and sumptuous new sets and costumes. Radiant soprano Elena Villalón and outstanding tenor Ricardo Garcia, both current members of the prestigious HGO Studio, sing the titular lovers, with Grammy Award-winning baritone Donnie Ray Albert, and HGO favorite, as Lord Capulet. HGO Resident Conductor Benjamin Manis takes the podium, and HGO Chorus Master Richard Bado leads the chorus.
The mission of the Houston Grand Opera is to advance the operatic art to serve an ever-evolving audience, HGO leads the field in commissioning new works (70 world premieres to date) and in training and nurturing promising young artists and administrators. The company contributes to the cultural enrichment of Houston and the nation through a diverse and innovative program of performances, community events, and education projects that reaches the widest possible public. HGO’s pioneering community engagement initiative, HGOco, has served as a model for other arts organizations.
