Join Illinois' alum on Saturday at HGO's production of “Sweeney Todd"!
HGO still has tickets available for Saturday evening, May 2nd as the Houston Illini club sees Illinois' alum and world renowned School of Music Professor Nathan Gunn in the title role of "Sweeny Todd"!
Our Illini club's event organizers Anna and Joel Catalano attended opening night of Houston Grand Opera's production of Sweeney Todd, and reported that it was fantastic! World renowned singer and Illinois' School of Music Professor Nathan Gunn in the title role performs incredibly (you can hear and see a brief clip of his performance here.) If you are into gore/horror/humor/music (any of those!), you will enjoy. As a reminder, there is a small group of Illini club members who had purchased tickets for our alumni event and those individuals may obtain them until the May 2nd performance time at HGO's "will call" window. For everyone else, though the opportunity to join the club has closed, there remain many excellent seats including near our Grand Tier area via HGO's website, so join us!
