« This season will be one of triumph over adversity as we open in our temporary home at the George R. Brown Convention Center (GRB). Our talented production team will transform an exhibit hall into a unique and exciting performance space that you’ll want to see for yourself. » With this statement, Houston Grand Opera announces that it temporarily quits the Wortham Theatre which was flooded by Hurricane Harvey and moves for the first three productions of the season to the Exhibit Hall A3 of the city’s George R. Brown Convention Center, which sheltered hundreds of Texans during the storm.

The Opera is currently finalizing the new venue design and seating configuration of the hall, which will be called HGO Resilience Theater.

It will feature approximately 1,700 seats, with a combination of stadium seating and floor seating. Convenient parking is available directly across from the new venue. A sky bridge connects the parking garage to the ‘opera house’

The Opera says: « Any time there is a change to a stage or theatre, productions have to be altered to accommodate the new space requirements and restrictions. We are fortunate to have the freedom in this new venue to customize the space to fit our unique needs, allowing us to maintain the artistic integrity of the productions. We assure you that we will adhere to the high level of quality audiences have come to expect from HGO. «
