Houston Grand Opera East + West presents From my Mother's Mother
As part of its Song of Houston: East + West initiative, Houston Grand Opera HGOco presents From my Mother's Mother by Jeeyoung Kim (composer) and Janine Joseph (librettist). A hot bowl of seaweed soup, also known as birthday soup, is traditionally prepared for new Korean mothers for 21 days to aid in their recovery. From my Mother's Mother follows the passing down and rejection of this tradition through four generations of Korean-American women.
The performance will take place in the Jose Quintero Theatre (133 Cynthia Woods Mitchell).
