The Seeking the Human Spirit initiative at Houston Grand Opera is the largest-scale multi-year artistic initiative ever undertaken by the company. It links the multifaceted arts of opera with the complex spiritual searches that exist within the works themselves. Patrick Summers will focus on how these themes are illuminated in Donizetti’s La Favorite and Mozart’s The Magic Flute. Art, he argues, is more necessary now than ever before to nurture freedom of thought, joy, and the promise of meaning in a world besieged with economic, environmental, and political upheaval.

Patrick Summers was named artistic and music director of HGO in 2011 after having served as the company’s music director since 1998. He has conducted more than 60 operas at HGO, including the company’s first-ever complete cycle of Wagner’s Ring and its first performances of Verdi’s Requiem. In 2017, he was awarded an honorary doctor of music degree from Indiana University.
