Adults - Thursday at 6:30 - Houston Grand Opera: Music, Literature and the Human Experience!

There are certain stories that weave their way into centuries of art and literature because they are central to our understanding of who we are. Faust and his infamous deal with the devil is one of these stories. From contemporary treatments on TV and in film to Gounod's opera, come explore the dichotomies of human experience through the story and circumstances of Gounod's Faust. This event encourages group participation in discussion.

The Friends of Freeman Library support this event.
