Continuing the New Works Festival, Opera in the Heights will co-produce two world premieres with new music collective Musiqa, a Houston-based company that integrates new music with other modern art forms. These works are presented in a double bill format in the same night.

Kassandra, composed by Anthony Brandt, with libretto by Neena Beber, adapts the Greek myth of Cassandra and Apollo in a modern retelling for the #MeToo era. The Leader, composed by Canadian-American composer Karim Al-Zand, and based on Eugène Ionesco’s play of the same name, is an absurdist political satire and a call for independent thinking and personal engagement.
