Correct Option: A

The audience for the new opera, an inventive rendition of Wagner's Tristan and Isolde, was clearly enthralled by the show ,for the attendees paused for some moments before applauding vigorously at its conclusion.

(A) was clearly enthralled by the show, for the attendees -- Correct.

(B) were clearly enthralled by the show, for they -- Wrong. Audience is singular, "were" cannot be used and pronoun ambiguity

(C) were clearly enthralled by the show, as they -- Wrong. Same as Option B

(D) was clearly enthralled by the show, for they -- Wrong. Although "was" correctly used, "they" plural pronoun does not have a proper antecedent.

(E) was clearly enthralled by the show, as is clear since its attendees -- Wrong. The latter part is wordy and "its" is ambiguous.
