The Moody Foundation Chandelier special performance

The Moody Foundation Chandelier in the Winspear Opera House is missing the crowds almost as much as we are! Here is a special performance showcasing the amazing capabilities of our beloved chandelier.

About the Moody Foundation Chandelier: As audiences enter McDermott Hall in the Winspear Opera House, the Moody Chandelier’s 318 L.E.D acrylic light rods are extended in a tapered position with the longest rod stretching 40 feet. The chandelier is lifted just prior to a performance so that audiences seated in the upper balconies have an unobstructed view. Once fully recessed, the chandelier mimics twinkling stars in the night sky. The dramatic fixture is one of the most photographed and talked-about features at the Center. The chandelier was named in honor of The Moody Foundation in 2013 following a $5 million gift from the Galveston-based foundation.
