University of Houston Moores Opera Center presents Rappaccini's Daughter
Lose yourself in Dr. Rappaccini's enticing garden, which is filled not only with his experimental poisonous plants but also with his equally lethal, yet seductive, daughter. Based on a Nathaniel Hawthorne story as retold by the Nobel Prize winning Octavio Paz, the opera explores a Garden of Eden gone awry with lush, sinfully sensuous music awash in orchestral color.
This is the last in the University of Houston's series of all of the completed operas of Daniel Catán. Sung in the original Spanish with English surtitles.
