As part of its Song of Houston: East + West series, HGOco presents Bound by composer Huang Ruo and librettist Bao-Long Chu.

Bound follows Diane, a Vietnamese high school truant, who struggles with conflicting aspects of her life that bind the present to the past. Haunted by her mother's memories of war, she navigates between forgetting and remembering, and desire and duty.
