Houston Grand Opera, the temple of classical music

Created 60 years ago, the small company turned into an opera reference of national calibre.

From its creation in 1955, the Houston Grand Opera on Preston Street has built its reputation on offering a unique program, modern and diversified. Until 1987, performances took place in the heart of Downtown at Jones Hall, but they have moved to Wortham Center, a magnificent and brand new opera house located only minutes from the old one.

The company offers all sorts of operatic performances from the more classical ones like Faust or a Wagner Cycle to new productions encompassing modern American history like Jackie O., Nixon in China and Harvey Milk. We can also mention an adaptation of Saint-Exupéry's The Little Prince and the first Spanish-language opera Florencia en el Amazonas, presented in two acts and taking inspiration from Gabriel Garcia Márquez's magical realism.
