The Center hosts three of the nation's best performance venues, the Winspear Opera HouseWyly Theatre and Strauss Square, while outside the Center, Sammons Park offers green space in the Dallas style for concerts and picnics.

Our resident companies include the Dallas Black Dance Theatre, the Anita N. Martinez Ballet Folklorico, as well as Dallas OperaTexas Ballet Theater and Dallas Theater Center.
