The Dallas Opera

The Dallas Opera is a world-class opera company founded in 1957; and after operating for decades from the Music Hall at Fair Park, it now resides in the Winspear Opera House at the AT&T Performing Arts Center in the Dallas Arts District. Opera is an exhilarating showcase of ornate costuming, elaborate scenery, dramatic singing actors, and racy plots about life, death, sex, political intrigue, mistaken identities, star-crossed lovers, and much, much more.


Party Like it's 1799


Since many opera venues are now specifically catering to the 20 - 40 year old audience demographic, attending an opera is something that everyone should consider doing at least once if so inclined. Stroll through the lobby in formalwear on opening night, attend a pre-concert lecture, listen to some of the most amazing vocal talent in the world, hear timeless masterpieces from classical musicians like Mozart, and party like it's 1799.


Perform Onstage at the Winspear


Performing arts companies (like The Dallas Opera) often make open casting calls for supernumeraries (which are like movie extras). Supers do not sing or have speaking parts, but are rather used onstage in large crowd scenes or in background roles such as guards, peasants, servants, etc. Inexperienced actors have a chance to perform alongside some of the most famous stars in the world in a sort of grown-up version 'dress-up,' they get to experience the inner workings of productions, and are even sometimes modestly paid.


To begin embarking on a journey into classic opera, see Opera: A Beginner's Guide or read information on the Winspear Opera House and Seating at the Winspear Opera House.
