The Dallas Opera - Know Before You Go
© The Flash List
Opera is one of the fastest growing performing art forms in the country right now with an exhilarating showcase of ornate costuming, elaborate scenery, dramatic singing actors, and racy plots about life, death, sex, political intrigue, mistaken identities, star-crossed lovers, and much, much more.
Since many opera venues are now specifically catering to the 20 - 40 year old audience demographic, we at The Flash List feel that attending an opera is something that everyone should do at least once if so inclined. Stroll through the lobby in formalwear on opening night, attend a pre-concert lecture, listen to some of the most amazing vocal talent in the world, hear timeless masterpieces from classical musicians like Mozart, and party like it's 1799.
