I never thought I would be the type of person to attend an opera, much less like them. However, after being introduced to the opera here in Houston I am hooked. We have had season tickets for the past couple of years. It has been wonderful. Not only that, it has been fairly inexpensive. David Gockley has left the Houston Opera to work in San Francisco. I am not sure how that will affect the quality, but hopefully it will have no effect. The Houston Grand Opera usually debuts a new opera each season.
