Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House

Walk down Flora Street, and cast your eyes on the red, glowing glass facade of the Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House. With its transparent, soaring 60-foot glass walls revealing views of the Grand Lobby, the Winspear Opera House  provides an intimate theater-going experience for all.

The Winspear Opera House has been the home of performances by Billy Crystal, Beauty and the Beast, Avenue Q.  In addition to the hugely popular upcoming performance of Blue Man Group, Texas Ballet Theater’s, The Nutcracker and The Jazz Roots series, the Winspear Opera House will present the Academy Award winning composer T Bone Burnett, in a special evening concert.

During this unforgettable evening, T Bone Burnett will match his music to images and share his recollections from working with artists from B.B. King to the Coen brothers; as well as showing clips from films he’s been involved in and  from other great films that have influenced his work.

T Bone Burnett won an Oscar for Best Original Song for “The Weary Kind,” the theme from Crazy Heart. He also worked as a composer, music supervisor and producer for movies such O Brother, Where Art Thou?, Walk the Line, Across the Universe, and The Big Lebowski.  T Bone also won a Grammy for producing Raising Sand, a collaborative album featuring Alison Krauss and Robert Plant.

Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre

Theater lovers will love seeing plays on the world’s only vertical theatre, the innovative design of the Wyly Theatre creates the ultimate performance flexibility.  With only 600 seats in the Wyly Theatre, there is not a bad seat in the house. The Dallas Theater Center will present  William Shakespeare’s HENRY IV, September 10-October 10, 2010

Henry IV is a raucous comedy, with  large-scale battlefield action. With England torn by civil war, the ailing King Henry is desperately fighting rebel armies, this drama of a prodigal son who must learn to become a man and a king is one of Shakespeare’s most popular plays.
