Julia Childs Inspired a Generation of Home Cooks – Now, Watch Her Story Unfold!

Indulge in the sweetest sensation in theatre history! On Saturday, September 21st, enjoy a spectacular opening night of surrealist and culinary musical delights at Wortham Theater Center when the Center presents Bon Appétit!

Bon Appétit! is an episode of The French Chef cooking show turned short opera featuring Mezzo-Soprano Victoria Borg as culinary Icon Julia Child. Filled with the wit and charm of the famous chef, watch as she prepares a decadent chocolate cake over the course of the opera.

Julia Child was a beloved American icon who pioneered an entire genre of cooking shows and taught a generation of food lovers that cooking can be easy and enjoyable. Although she often made mistakes while cooking, she remained unflappable, encouraging viewers to accept mishaps and continue cooking. The child ended each show with “Bon appétit!”
“Like [Julia] Child’s whipped egg whites, Bon Appetit! maybe light and frothy, but it’s the result of a master’s sure touch.” – Opera News
