Houston Grand Opera presents Strega Nona
Strega Nona has a magical touch. With a song and three kisses, she can create a delicious pasta meal. Her new helper, Big Anthony, is an enthusiastic young man with a short attention span. Can he resist temptation to try his own hand at magic when Strega Nona leaves town?
Big Anthony learns a big lesson about respect for other people’s property and the importance of paying attention. With music by Mary Carol Warwick and a libretto by Mary an Pendino, Strega Nona is a delightful presentation of this classic children’s book by Tomie dePaola.
