If you love French films, mark September 25 at 7 p.m. on your calendar. That’s when HGO Artistic and Music Director Patrick Summers will be the featured guest at the season opener of Museum of Fine Arts, Houston’s popular Movies Houstonians Love film series. Maestro Summers will present the 1998 French comedy Le diner de cons (The Dinner Game), which he first saw nearly 20 years ago and has loved ever since.
“It’s an intelligent and hilarious comedy about very mean people who learn an extraordinary lesson about humanity,” he says. “I always associate it with The Marriage of Figaro because it has the same Mozartian mixture of meanness, laughter, and forgiveness.”
MFAH Director Gary Tinterow will introduce Maestro Summers. For more information visit https://www.mfah.org/films/
