Houston Grand Opera Presents VINKENSPORT, OR THE FINCH OPERA on HGO Digital

Houston Grand Opera (HGO) returns this Friday, Oct. 23 on HGO Digital with the release of Vinkensport, or The Finch Opera, a hilarious sendup of the little-known Belgian sport of professional finch-calling by composer David T. Little and librettist Royce Vavrek. Conducted by Austin Opera's Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor Timothy Myers and co-directed by HGO Studio alumnus Ryan McKinny and General and Artistic Director of OPERA San Antonio E. Loren Meeker, this HGO Digital release is a cinematic adaptation in one act.

Vinkensport, or The Finch Opera, will be available to stream for free on HGO Digital for one month following release. In lieu of canceled performances in the 2020-21 season, HGO is releasing original video content bimonthly for audiences to enjoy from the comfort of their homes, free of charge on HGO Digital.
