ABOUT THIS CONCERT
Meet Anna I. Meet Anna II. They’re two sides of the same person—and they’re about to take you on one wild ride.
From the storied composer-lyricist team of Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht, The Seven Deadly Sins follows two personas (one sensible, one sultry) on a seven-city pursuit of the American dream, with a different sin at every stop. The incredible Storm Large has earned rave reviews playing Anna everywhere from Carnegie Hall to the Kennedy Center, and now brings her signature role to Houston. Part parody. Part poetry. All riveting.
Pre-Concert Activities: Attend the Prelude pre-concert discussion, held 45 minutes prior to each Classical concert. Prelude is led by our Musical Ambassador Carlos Andrés Botero, and sometimes features guest artists or orchestra members.
