Performance Art Centers
Nestled in the heart of the Dallas Arts District, the AT&T Performing Arts Center is hailed as the most significant performing arts center built since Lincoln Center in New York City. The center is home to the Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House, which follows a traditional horseshoe shape, engineered specifically for opera and musical theater performances. The Winspear is home to the Dallas Opera and Texas Ballet Theater.
The Meyerson opened its doors in late 1989 to international critical acclaim. It is home to the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, currently under the leadership of the world-famous Maestro Jaap Van Zweeden. Every detail of the concert hall was designed to achieve the highest acoustical quality, with special elements of the design providing the capability of tailoring the acoustical environment to the performance. The Meyerson Symphony Center is also home to the renowned Dallas Wind Symphony.
Not too big, not too small. The Dallas City Performance Hall, located in the Dallas Arts District, opened in September 2012 and brought an intimate setting for hosting lively performances in the heart of Downtown. The hall serves as a multidisciplinary center to present cultural performances by small- and mid-sized organizations, representing the breadth of artistic and cultural diversity in Dallas.
The Majestic Theatre is the centerpiece of the Downtown Dallas's historic entertainment center. The theater, recognized as a historical landmark at both the state and national level, opened its doors in 1921, and remains to date one of the most elegant performing arts in the city and possibly the Southwest.
The compact, vertical orientation of the Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre, climbing 12 stories into the Dallas skyline, was designed by Joshua Prince-Ramus of REX and Rem Koolhaas of the Office for Metropolitan Architecture. The theater, home to the Dallas Theater Center, Dallas Black Dance Theatre and the Anita N. Martinez Ballet Folkorico, is a prime destination for music and theatre enthusiasts.
