Don't miss the world premiere of O Columbia, a new chamber opera that celebrates the wonder of exploration and reflects upon the necessary risks of discovering new frontiers. Inspired by interviews with Houston-based NASA astronauts, scientists, and engineers, O Columbia traces a history of dreamers and explorers-from Sir Walter Raleigh journeying to the New World, to a Houston teenager experiencing communion, and later, heartbreak, with a Columbia space shuttle astronaut, to future astronauts venturing to the far reaches of the solar system-in an ode to America's pioneering spirit.

Created by and featuring a constellation of rising operatic talents, O Columbia comes to life in an inventive and surprising production in an unexpected venue-just across the street from the Wortham Theater Center. Space is limited, so purchase your tickets early!

Join us at the Revention Music Center lobby bar starting at 6:30 p.m. before each performance to meet and mingle with members of the creative team--and stay after the show for a talkback with the artists. The Bayou Music Center invites you to bring your refreshments into the theater during the performance.
