Attention, Best in Show fans: Get ready to laugh uproariously at this chamber opera from composer David T. Little and librettist Royce Vavrek, a hilarious sendup of the little-known Belgian sport of professional finch-calling. The birds’ names alone are worth the price of admission to this fun, occasionally poignant work, conducted by Austin Opera’s Sarah & Ernest Butler Principal Conductor & Artistic Advisor Timothy Myers and directed by HGO Studio alumnus Ryan McKinny and E. Loren Meeker.

Additionally, as part of the Sarah & Ernest Butler Performance Series and our partnership with Houston Grand Opera, Vinkensport, or the Finch Opera is available for a limited time (until November 22, 2020) on-demand on Houston Grand Opera’s Marquee TV channel!
