This fall, the HGO Studio revives a tradition from years past: presenting our annual Studio Showcase in the Wortham’s Cullen Theater in mid-September, before the company’s season begins. This program of opera scenes introduces the artists of the Studio to the HGO community and gives our incoming artists an opportunity to perform for their new “home” audience for the first time.

Among this year’s highlights are two scenes that preview HGO’s season: a charming duet from The Magic Flute and the epic fourth-act duet between Amneris and Radames from Aida. Other selections include scenes from Handel’s rarely-performed Giustino, Floyd’s Of Mice and Men, Debussy’s lush Pelléas et Melisande and Rossini’s rare, hilarious comedy La pietra del paragone. The program closes with excerpts from two famous stories, Massenet’s Cendrillon (Cinderella) and Thomas’ Hamlet.

This year’s Studio Showcase will be presented on September 13 at 7 p.m. and September 15 at 2 p.m. at the Cullen Theater.
