Owner description: Opera house in Houston that features opera presentations throughout the year.

The recent staging of Rusalka was one of the most imaginative productions I have seen. Add to that the beautiful tenor and soprano voices in the lead roles, and you have a most satisfying opera experience! I won't describe how Rusalka and her
sister mermaids emerge as that would take away from the thrill of first seeing their personas. It is the rule, rather than an exception,, to see a great performance when you attend Houston Opera events. Bravo HGO!!

We attended an opening night performance. We were well greeted upon arrival and offered assistance to find our seats! The facilities were exemplary and all members of staff were welcoming. Tip - email to enquire about Nexus tickets! We were very fortunate to get prime seats at awesome prices. We cannot express our thanks for the gracious assistance.

We attended the opera and everything was very comfortable and was a great evening. Eugene Onegin was the opera and although it was nearly sold out, we had no problems with parking or seating. Park underground in the safe parking lot and walk directly into the theater through the tunnel. The set was inspiring and fascinating and the cast was super talented. Well worth the small price of a ticket for a wonderful evening.

World-class opera. We saw Eugene Onegin, featuring the same sets and costumes that were in the Metropolitan Opera's production. The tenor who sang the role of Lensky was absolutely wonderful! This is a BIG, steeply raked hall. Acoustics seemed good, and sight lines were also very good.

First time to the Houston Grand Opera; enjoyed Tosca immensely. Didn't save money by accepting "obstructed legroom" but it did put us on the front row of the Level 5 balcony. Excellent talent and presentation. When I go again I will pay to be closer to the symphony and stage. I wouldn't recommend "obstructed legroom" unless guests are short. 2.5 Hours is a bit much for obstructed legroom. We parked at Little Napoli's Italian, across from Wortham Center, for $16.
