Dallas Opera presents The Golden Cockerel by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov

Oct.  25, 27, 30 and Nov. 2

Wednesday-Saturday at 7:30 pm with a 2:30 pm matinee on Sunday

When it comes to inept leaders, King Dodon takes the cake. He’s lazy, has terrible advisors, and would
rather be in bed eating bonbons than waging war! But he’s also petrified that his enemies will take him by surprise. Happily, his astrologer gives him the perfect gift: a golden cockerel that sounds the alarm whenever danger is near. But even the magical bird can’t save Dodon when he comes up against his most formidable adversary—a voluptuous young queen, who unashamedly displays her charms!
