Carlisle Floyd’s “Cold Sassy Tree” made its world premiere in 2000 at Houston Grand Opera. The work (based on the 1984 book by Olive Ann Burns) earned much acclaim and became a popular staple of contemporary opera. In April, both the opera and composer will return to Houston for a homecoming. The University of Houston’s Moores Opera Center will present the city’s second production of “Cold Sassy Tree.” Floyd, who taught at UH, will revisit the campus and attend performances. “Cold Sassy Tree” will be performed April 4 – 7 in UH’s Moores Opera House.
