KHOU-TV has just confirmed that flood waters are swirling over the main stages of the Wortham Theater Center, which houses Houston Ballet and Houston Grand Opera.
We have received a private message saying that the basement is completely flooded and there is water in both theaters. Generators have been turned off and the building is shut down.
The arts companies cannot be reached. HGO messages: ‘Due to power outages stemming from the severe weather in Houston, our website is down. We will provide an update as soon as possible.’
There is no word at all from the Houston Symphony, which cancelled an open day yesterday in anticipation of the floods emergency.
