Verdi’s timeless Aida returns to the Wortham this weekend February 14th and 16th, 2020 with an awe-inspiring new production directed by Phelim McDermott. This stunning new design is enhanced by the incorporation of visionary artists Basil Twist’s silk choreography. Set in ancient Egypt during the pinnacle of war, the captive princess Aida falls in love with a conquering general and must choose between true love and loyalty to her country. Verdi's powerful music heightens the unforgettable story of betrayal and sacrifice.

Celebrated American soprano and Houston Grand Opera Studio alumna Tamara Wilson sings the title role of Aida. Russell Thomas makes his HGO debut as Radames. HGO Artistic and Music Director Patrick Summers conducts.

Aventura in Concert
@Toyota Center 

The legendary Bachata band have announced their first U.S. tour in over 10 years. Romeo Santos, Lenny Santos, Henry Santos, and Max Agende Santos will reunite to bring their fans a once in a lifetime show in 2020.

They were the first bachata act to sing a whole bachata song in English. Romeo innovated bachata with fresh lyrics that incorporated songs with different themes, instead of just singing about heartbreak. Lenny innovated bachata guitar with his use of electric guitars. He also innovated the tone of bachata guitar by adding guitar effects such as wah, phaser, distortion, tremolo and harmonizer. Max innovated the bachata bass with his use of bass techniques such as slapping and bass slides. Max incorporated a lot of rock bass riffs into bachata.
