Ryan McKinny directs Bon Appétit! Livestream from Houston Grand Opera

On November 27, renowned mezzo-soprano and HGO Studio alumna Jamie Barton delights as Julia Child in Lee Hoiby’s one-woman opera. Based on an episode of Child’s TV program, The French Chef, this short, critically acclaimed confection, directed by HGO Studio alumnus Ryan McKinny, brings audiences into the chef’s storied kitchen as she bakes a chocolate cake. Bon Appétit! shares a double bill with The Impresario.

Viewers around the world will be able to transport themselves to a front row seat and stream this opera worldwide through Marquee TV. The subscription-based arts channel will host Houston Grand Opera’s brand-new content and allow users to access it for free through their website, app, Roku, Apple TV, Fire TV, and other platforms.
