This is not "The Grand Old Opera" from Hee-Haw. Dallas Opera is the real deal and Grand Opera at its best. I went to see "The Flying Dutchman" and it was spectacular. I did not realize that I may be an Wagnerian, smile. The house...More

An excellent venue for music concerts and individual performances and the size of the facility is just right if you like smaller places with excellent seats in all locations. We enjoy the shows and the parking is right under the building.

Attractive setting both inside and out, and the staff are always friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. Have always enjoyed every performance whether it be a play, a dance or musical. Going again soon and looking forward to it!

My wife and I had the good fortune of experiencing Riverdance at the Winspear Opera House. The performance was most certainly a top ten of our theater experiences. The venue I would consider a formerly modern elegance. The seating was comfortable and the ambiance enjoyable....More
