The Snowy Day

Based on The Snowy Day, a book by Ezra Jack Keats
Let Yourself Take a Snow Day

 

World Premiere

 

The beloved children’s book comes to life for the holidays in the world premiere by composer Joel Thompson and librettist Andrea Davis Pinkney. Join Peter, a young boy in New York City, as he experiences the joy of a fresh snowfall and finds delight in crunching, sliding, and playing his way through a snowy day. Julia Bullock makes her HGO debut as Peter, and director Omer Ben Seadia brings the wonder and magic of Peter’s wintry world to life. HGO Artistic and Music Director Patrick Summers conducts.
