The Houston Ballet says in a message that « a disruption of the company’s systems from a power outage and minor water damage that caused our ticketing and email systems to go offline, our offices are closed and will remain closed through Labor Day. »

Furthermore, their season-opening performances of Poetry in Motion, scheduled for September 8-17, have been unavoidably cancelled. The Ballet says: « We will endeavor to reschedule those performances in the coming months. We are hopeful that Mayerling will be able to open the season with performances beginning on September 21st, as previously scheduled. This plan, of course, depends on the availability of the Wortham Theater Center, which has incurred some storm-related damage, as previously reported. »

The good news is that « in advance of Harvey, Houston Ballet personnel relocated a substantial portion of our valuable costumes, including those for The Nutcracker, from the Wortham Theater basement to a safe location. And, we are so pleased to report that the warehouse where all of our sets and additional costumes are stored sustained no damage. »
