The Wortham Theater Center comprises two opera houses, the 2,465-seat Brown Theatre, home of the Houston Ballet and the Houston Grand Opera, and the 1,100-seat Cullen Theatre which houses a number of smaller regional performing arts organizations. One of the Brown's key acoustical features is the design is the "frying pan" pods. The pods are accessed from slim walkways located over the rear of the orchestra seating level. This allows the music to flow between the pods and into areas that are normally not considered good listening positions in most opera houses.
