Houston Grand Opera is setting up shop in a temporary home – The George R. Brown Convention Center. After Hurricane Harvey swept across southeast Texas, many of Houston’s performing arts venues were left stricken by floodwater and forced to relocate.
Knowing that the show must go on, GRB’s Hall A3 has been transformed and cleverly dubbed “Resilience Theater” to serve as production space for Houston Grand Opera’s Fall Schedule.
Completed in 12 days, the temporary venue is scaled back from the company’s traditional grandiose digs at the Wortham. But that’s what makes it so unique. Using a minimalist approach, in what’s being called an ‘Unconventional Theater,’ the new structure gives audiences a more intimate experience. The 1,700 seating arrangement places viewers closer to the performance stage, allowing an exciting journey into the creative and theatrical process.
Take a trip Downtown to experience Houston Grand Opera’s fall lineup. The experience shows Houston’s resilience to continue after the storm.
