PLUS Prequels & Sequels to opera masterworks: "Mimi's Perfect Day" by Michael Remson; "Happy Endings" by Andrew Schneider

It's 1923, during the heart of Prohibition when bootleggers become mob bosses and everyone in "the family" wants their cut. Imagine what might have happened before and after Puccini’s La Bohème . Enjoy two delightfully silly accounts of
our favorite bohemians in Michael Remson's Mimì's Perfect Day and Andrew Schneider's Happy Endings .Read more

For the very first time in Houston! FOLK DANCES OF RAJASTHAN , in celebration of the 75th anniversary of India's Independence - brought to you by Samskriti, with support from the Indian Council for Cultural Relations, Govt. of India, and the Consulate of India in Houston.

Rajasthan, one of India's most historic States, with its magnificent palaces and forts, also has a rich cultural heritage with diverse folk dances that require both talent and skill. Anita Pradhan's dynamic group of dancers have been selected by the Government of India as its cultural ambassadors, to showcase Rajasthan's most celebrated folk dances. Dazzling costumes, unusual props, complex moves, presented to lively traditional folk songs with their own distinct instruments, and all of these indigenous to the region - this is what the audience will see, hear, and enjoy. This is a performance which transcends geographical and language barriers, and the sheer variety and beauty of the dances is bound to keep the viewers mesmerized. This is a FREE event, and open to all dance enthusiasts.

This program is made possible by grants from the BIPOC Arts Network, the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance, and the Texas Commission on the Arts.Read more
