Description

Harris County Public Library is honored to partner with Houston Grand Opera to present the premiere virtual presentation of "Katie: The Strongest of the Strong." Please join us for this charming and cheeky tale of real-life weightlifter Katie Brumback.


Based on the life of Austro-American weightlifter Katie Brumbach, Katie: The Strongest of the Strong is the charming and cheeky tale of Katie’s rise to fame, as she outlifts the strongest man in the world then joins the circus and eventually finds her place as an icon of the women’s suffrage movement. Told through the eyes of journalist Marina Martin, a chorus of circus women take on a multitude of characters in this operatic adventure, showing us that strength and beauty come in all shapes and sizes.
Music by Faye Chiao & Libretto by Anton Dudley.
