East Meets West in Chamber Opera Set in Contemporary Houston

Presented in Collaboration with HGOco

 

As Yani Rose Keo, a Cambodian refugee, sits on a plane bound for Houston, she is haunted by the empty seats around her. Joined on the plane by a Nepalese farmer, a Nigerian orphan, and a lost boy from the Sudan, she vows to help refugees like herself as they begin their new lives in America.

New Arrivals is one of eight chamber operas HGOco has commissioned for East + West, a series celebrating Houston as a meeting place for Eastern and Western cultures. Music by John Glover, libretto by Catherine Filloux.
