Business Description

The Wortham Center is home to Houston Ballet and Houston Grand Opera. Since its opening in 1987, Wortham has entertained more than 8 million people. It has also served as the backdrop for social galas, corporate functions and even weddings, further underscoring its role as a community center as well as a performing arts venue. Bold and beautiful, the Wortham is a facility like no other. It is a masterful, creative playground for performing artists, and unrestrained in the exuberance of its architecture. Within this splendid domain are an array of public spaces, both monumental and intimate: the jewel box-like theaters, the soaring six-story Grand Foyer, the delicately scaled Green Room and Founders Salon. Eugene Aubry of Morris Aubry Architects designed Wortham Center.
