The Houston Grand Opera Studio Showcase
The Houston Grand Opera Studio will present its fall Studio Showcase, featuring operatic scenes, including excerpts from upcoming 2015–16 season repertoire, with selections by Handel, Mozart, Puccini and Carlisle Floyd.
Hosted by Houston Grand Opera Dramaturg Paul Hopper, HGO Studio artists will perform scenes from The Marriage of Figaro, Tosca and more. All selections will be sung in the original languages with projected English translations.
Since its inception more than 30 years ago, the HGO Studio has served young singers, pianists, coaches, and conductors, providing a bridge between full-time training and the launch of their operatic careers. Members often perform roles in HGO’s main-stage operas, and many of the artists have gone on to major international careers.
