Final Performances in Paris

Our final 3 performances were spectacular...every performance had a standing ovation. The cast rose to the enormous challenge of 6 shows in 5 days and are rightly proud of themselves, the piece and the overwhelming crowd reaction to their performances. The final performance in Paris was as electric as the first night and the rhythmic clapping was like another number added to the show. Jean Luc Choplin who is the General Director at the Ch√Ętelet was onstage at the end hugging and kissing everyone and saying how he had no idea that Parisians would or indeed could react in such a way.

I have had inquiries from quite literally all over the world and we are hopeful that some of these will lead to future opportunities to show that relevant new work is not only needed but can engage new audiences and broaden the appeal of what we all do

To everyone who helps make HGO the stellar company it is - supporters, subscribers, Guild, performers, technical staff and administrative staff: thanks from all of us for this very proud day.

Signing off from France with very best wishes,

Managing Director
Houston Grand Opera
