Big Anthony has some lessons to learn in the Houston Grand Opera's HGOco's production of the children's show Strega Nona. Big Anthony is Strega Nona's assistant. He helps her in the kitchen where she cooks magical pasta dinners. When Strega Nona leaves town, Big Anthony can't help but try the magic he's seen her perform — with disastrous results. Mary Carol Warwick wrote the music and Mary Ann Pendino the libretto for this delightful family show.
