‘The Ballad of Baby Doe’

Friday, October 19, 2018

7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Music by Douglas Moore
Libretto by John Latouche

A true story inspired this gloriously romantic panorama of the American West with no less than five arias for the title character, each one more beautiful than the last. The final scene, appropriately set on the stage of an opera house, has one of the most moving endings in all of opera. This beloved work has not been seen in Houston in over 20 years.

October 19, 20, 22 at 7:30 p.m.
