Monday, March 1, 2021

7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

UPDATE as of 2/6/21: This event is SOLD OUT. Tickets will NOT be available at the door.

Music by Alejandro Basulto | Libretto by Criseida Santos-Guevara

Sung in English and Spanish, this 30-minute one-act opera tells the story of a janitor in an opera house who dreams of being a ranchera singer. Her encounter with a haughty soprano has unexpected results.

Alejandro Basulto is an award-winning Mexican composer and orchestral conductor. His music is characterized by a profound Latin-American identity, a vibrant integration of contemporary popular culture, a continuous exploration of diverse techniques, and the use of new narrative approaches.

This performance will be presented live in-person in Moores Opera House to a limited audience. Please be aware that all patrons will be required to wear face masks and maintain proper social distancing while attending live events at the University of Houston. Live events will be performed without intermission and seating will be assigned by ushers upon arrival to ensure proper social distancing between parties during the performance.
