HGO is a world class opera company. It is far better than San Francisco, Chicago, Seattle, Santa Fe, and even Toronto. The opera hall has fantastic acoustics, a big stage, and comfortable seats. This is worth a special trip.

Being Opera fans we have been lucky enough to visit a number of Performance Venues in Europe and the USA. Therefore whilst staying in the City we made sure to visit the HGO. The building is truly impressive and arriving at the main entrance and ascending the elevator added to our experience. Our appreciation of the premier of a new work, was enhanced by a very helpful pre performance talk and the excellent production plus the quality of the Opera itself made for a memorable evening. Mention must also be made of the high quality of the front of house staff who made us very welcome, and were clearly involved with production.

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.
