Dallas Opera presents FIRST NIGHT 2012
Winspear Opera House
2403 Flora Street
Dallas, TX

Ticket Price: $500
THE OPENING NIGHT CELEBRATION OF THE 2012-2013 SEASON, IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE OPENING NIGHT PERFORMANCE OF AÏDA, The event, hosted by the Dallas Opera, will focus on the compelling power of art married to contemporary design in each of the mainstage operas (as well as the overtly passionate season theme) that comprise the company’s fourth season in the Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House at the AT&T Performing Arts Center: Verdi’s Aïda, Puccini’s Turandot, The Aspern Papers by Dominick Argento—and our delightful family production of Georges Bizet’s Doctor Miracle. It is the vision of 2012 FIRST NIGHT Chair Kaki Hopkins to incorporate these far-flung masterpieces from all corners of the globe into one fabulous night designed to create an all-encompassing ambiance of mystery and timeless beauty—from the red carpet arrivals to the elegant post-performance dinner. The thrills begin on the red carpet, at 6:00 p.m. the evening of Friday, October 26, at the plaza entrance to the Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House at the AT&T Performing Arts Center in the Dallas Arts District. Following the opera, the Dallas Opera’s special guests will adjourn to Annette Strauss Square next door, for a cosmopolitan, late-night dining experience chaired by Holly and Tom Mayer inside a lavishly decorated tent.
