....for the average person on the street, it's downright dull and boring.
Let's face it, this place was built for the Dallas elite. While the city let's it infrastructure crumble, while pot holes go unfilled and libraries struggle to keep their doors open, this monument to opulence and greed still gets whatever pampering it needs to keep going.
I've only been once.
Yes, it is beautiful to behold.
Yes, the acoustics are impressive.
But, frankly, I was bored to death the whole time I was there and couldn't wait for the intermission to give me an excuse to escape for at least a little while. My wife, who I was certain would insist on staying for the second half, actually suggested leaving.
So, I know there's an audience for this place. Hey, i like classical music-- in small spurts. But it is just plain boring to sit there and watch the director preen for the audience and watch everyone connected with it try to look all so important and pretty.
Sorry, I guess I'm just too pedestrian for the place.
Although I may find myself regretting these words in a few years, since my daughter plays the violia and may one day be playing in a venue like this.
