A new impressionist opera that will captivate

Don’t miss this compelling new opera created from the music of Debussy and Ravel, with text from Charles Baudelaire’s seminal volume Le Fleurs du mal.  Dark and dramatic, this impressionist opera tells the story of a young woman ready to make every sacrifice to help her twin brother become a famous painter.

This concert is made possible in part by the Houston Endowment and the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance.
