Dallas Opera Announces 2013-14 Season

Dallas Opera Announces 2013-14 Season

(Dallas, TX) – The Dallas Opera is proud to announce a return to four mainstage productions for the company’s bold and dazzling 2013-2014 Season in the Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House at the AT&T Performing Arts Center.

The 57th International Season, “BY LOVE TRANSFORMED” consists of works spanning three centuries-each of which challenged the musical or dramatic conventions of their day.

The new season will commence the evening of Friday, October 25, 2013 at 8:00 p.m. (please note new time for the Linda and Mitch Hart Season Opening Night Performance in conjunction with the Dallas Opera’s FIRST NIGHT) and continue through the final curtain calls on Sunday, April 13, 2014.

The 2013-2014 Season will include two much-loved classics, in addition to the Dallas premiere of an important twentieth-century work for the opera stage.  ThisDallas Opera season will also include the regional premiere-and, worldwide, only the fourth set of performances-of a thought-provoking new twenty-first centuryopera.  Among the upcoming season highlights are two major American debuts; however, every TDO performance will feature internationally renowned singers, conductors, and other artists of the top rank.

Each TDO production will feature the outstanding talents of the Dallas Opera Orchestra and Dallas Opera Chorus, led by some of the finest conductors at work in the world today.

As always, these masterpieces will be performed in their original languages, with English translations projected above the stage at every performance.

The Margot and Bill Winspear Opera house is located in the heart of the Arts District at 2403 Flora St., Dallas TX 75201.
