Concert on the Wortham Theater Center's Brown Stage

Louise G. Chapman, Presenting Underwriter
Jonas Kaufmann has performed over 70 roles in the world’s leading opera houses—and his first-ever appearance in Houston is now! The velvety-toned tenor, praised by the New York Times for his “clarion top notes, the blend of virility and tenderness in his singing…and refined musicianship” has earned rapturous praise as one of today’s greatest interpreters of Wagner repertoire and beyond. From Parsifal to Don José, “he embodies each role with such an investment that he makes one think this is the last time he will perform this work.” (Télérama). HGO Artistic and Music Director Patrick Summers conducts the HGO Orchestra during this extraordinary evening.
Gala package includes premium concert tickets and seated dinner with Jonas Kaufmann.

Important 2021-22 Season Updates
The safety of our staff, cast, technicians, and audiences remains HGO’s first consideration as we plan our upcoming season. While there will be some changes, including the need for flexibility in seating options, for the Fall Repertoire, we hope to return to normalcy—or close to it—by the holidays.
We are grateful to have wonderful partners in Houston Methodist, who have graciously agreed to guide us as we establish safety protocols. In addition, we have consulted prominent physicians and are working in accordance with world health provider recommendations. The measures HGO is implementing for live performances could include temperature checks before entering the building; a mask requirement that will be in effect throughout the building, including in seats; social distancing; and increased hand sanitation stations.
