Lawrence Edelson, Director
Lawrence Edelson and M. Gabriela Estrada, Choreographers
Steven Osgood, Conductor
Moores Opera Center at The University of Houston presents the Houston premiere of Osvaldo Golijov and David Henry Hwang’s Ainadamar - a haunting reflection on the life of poet and playwright Federico García Lorca, whose politics and sexuality led to his brutal execution during the Spanish Civil War. Golijov’s Grammy award-winning cinematic score grabs you from the very first beat – weaving together influences from around the world in a mesmerising mixture of opera and the traditional song of Andalusia.
A pre-show talk with Moores Opera Center Artistic Director Lawrence Edelson and Conductor Steven Osgood will be held 45 minutes prior to curtain in Room 108.
