|Fiesta Mexicana Barroca, free concert at Miller Outdoor Theatre|
Produced by Mercury Baroque
HOUSTON―On Saturday, Sept. 5, Mercury Baroque and their músicos invite Houstonians to Fiesta Mexicana Barroca at Miller Outdoor Theatre, a free concert at 8 p.m.
Opening the performance are excerpts from Vivaldi’s opera Montezuma. This long lost opera, which dramatizes the conflict between Cortez and Montezuma, is the first opera set in the Americas and perfectly sets the stage for the Mexican music featured in the rest of the program. Mercury Baroque and Voz en Punto (pictured) will perform the music of Padilla, Murcia, Salazar and other Mexican baroque composers.
Miller Outdoor Theatre, where performances are always FREE, has entertained and delighted several generations of Houstonians. Pack a picnic basket, a blanket or lawn chair to enjoy the performance from the hill, or sit in the brand new seats under the canopy.
Approximately 1,700 new seats have just been installed under the canopy. All performances at Miller Outdoor Theatre are FREE of CHARGE.
