Introduced by Khori Dastoor, General Director & CEO at Houston Grand Opera

Judy Garland and Margaret O’Brien star in Vincente Minnelli’s heartwarming musical Meet Me in St. Louis, set in the time leading to the 1904 World’s Fair. The story concerns a colorful, early-20th-century St. Louis family and their emotional experience when they learn their father has been transferred—and they must move to New York. Songs include “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”
