I go to the Nutcracker every year in Houston. I live in the Austin area, but this place is so much better! We have the founders box and I wouldn't use any other seats. I am short, my husband is very tall, so being in...More
Went to see the Nutcracker. Lovely building and the ballet was fantastic. The venue is very comfortable and well managed. Parking is close by and views from the seats are great. Would enjoy going to see other performance there as it is any easy venue...More
Beautiful theater. Just reopened after the closure due to Hurricane Harvey. The staff and all us patrons were very happy to be back. It is a family tradition we done for over 20 years. I highly recommend it. The performance of The new Nurcracker was...More
We attended the Nutcracker ballet matinee performance on a Sunday afternoon. Very easily accessible. What a grand space! We had seats in the nosebleed seats on the sixth level. Somewhat unnerving with induction of a vertiginous feeling when first seated. Well, in spite of all...More
There’s something to be said for opera performed in historic venues, as in Chicago and San Francisco, for example. But I’d argue that there’s just about as much to be said for newer accommodations as well—of which the Houston Grand Opera’s Brown Theater is as...More
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.
I remember when it...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!
