Houston Grand Opera’s 68th world premiere is the HGOco-commissioned Marian’s Song, composed by Damien Sneed to a libretto by Deborah D.E.E.P. Mouton, Houston’s poet laureate emerita. The opera is based on the life of Marian Anderson, one of the most celebrated singers of the 20th century, who broke racial barriers throughout her storied career. This innovative fusion of opera, spoken word, and multimedia projections debuts in March 2020.
