Secret love bound by silence.
Once the most performed opera of its time, this bel canto drama features some of the most challenging arias ever written. Woven into Donizetti’s now–rarely performed La favorite is a classic love triangle among a noblewoman, king, and warrior.
Opera powerhouse and HGO Studio alumna Jamie Barton and international star Lawrence Brownlee return to Houston for this HGO premiere.
Sung in French with projected English translation.
