We went to the HGO's Gottenerammerung last night. It was fantastic! It is a 5 hour long show with 2 intermission. The parking was easy access, we walked to the ground level and the entrance is across the street. We were in grand tier, and...More
First I must say that the Wortham building reminds me of Radio City Music Hall in New York City. This is a beautiful building. Very luxurious and the entire venue was breathtaking. The ushers were so accommodating and gracious. They helped us to our seats...More
The Wortham is home to the Houston Grand Opera and the Houston Ballet. It a magnificent building which houses two beautiful theatre spaces - one for the large opera and ballet performances and the other for smaller productions and stage plays.

For the price of the tickets the isles between the seats should have a lot more room! Trying to get out of the rows are ridiculous. If you want to get out everyone has to get up, and even then you can barely get by....More
Parking is as good as you can get with that many people coming and going. They do a good job in my opinion. The theater is lovely with adequate restrooms. There's a restroom downstairs that usually has no waiting unlike the one on the top...More

This may be a bit late for you, but I will always recommend the Orchestra seating except in the case of having little ones if for the only reason being the expense of the seats and what a shame it would be to miss the performance for a pottybreak or an untimely meltdown because once you leave for any reason you can not re-enter until intermission is over.
We sat in the Grand Tier when the kiddos were younger and 2 of the 10 times we've taker her, we've had to watch the remainder of the performance in the viewing room - not the same, but it comes with the territory or having small children.
When they can manage siting for an hour virtually uninterupted, then Ochestra - here you come. There are always little ones when we see the Nutcracker at Orchestra level so that's not really an issue. I just never want to spend $90 per seat to have to watch a portion of the performance in the viewing room bacause my little one decided during the show was a good time to go potty or need a drink or etc....
Hope this helps!
