Asia Society Presents! Bound, An Original HGOco Opera
Bound tells the story of Diane, a Vietnamese high school truant, who struggles with conflicting aspects of her life that bind the past to the present. Haunted by her mother's memories of war, she navigates between forgetting and remembering, and desire and duty.
Music by Huang Ruo. Libretto by Bao-Long Chu.
In collaboration with Houston Grand Opera. This presentation of Bound is part of HGOco’s East + West series, which celebrates Houston as a crossroads for Eastern and Western cultures. Performing arts programs at Asia Society Texas Center are made possible by support from Bank of America. Additional support provided by Asia Society contributors and members.
