Houston Grand Opera presents Julius Caesar
Togas are out and glam is in with this Julius Caesar. Set on a 1930s movie soundstage in the enchanted golden age of Hollywood, this Baroque opera comes to life as a big movie musical complete with an art deco Egyptian pyramid, glitzy costumes, and a silver screen Cleopatra.
This opera will now take place at the George R. Brown Convention Center in downtown Houston, due to the closing of the Wortham Theater Center for repairs. The opera will be presented in Exhibit Hall A3 of the convention center, to be called the HGO Resilience Theater, an intimate theater for “unconventional opera.”
