Houston Grand Opera presents HGO and Plácido - Coming Home
When Houston Grand Opera opened its first season in Houston’s new opera house at the Wortham Theater Center in 1987, world-renowned tenor Plácido Domingo starred in Verdi’s Aida. Now, just over 30 years later, Domingo will again take the Wortham stage for HGO and Plácido - Coming Home!, a gala evening celebrating the company’s return to its creative home after a year of displacement following Hurricane Harvey.
Joined by beloved Houston soprano Ana María Martínez and the HGO Orchestra conducted by HGO Artistic and Music Director Patrick Summers, Domingo will perform an evening of operatic and popular musical favorites. The concert will be followed by a celebration dinner in the Ballroom at Bayou Place. All proceeds from the evening will benefit HGO’s post–Hurricane Harvey activities.
