Dallas Opera announces free simulcast at Cowboys Stadium

Posted on: January 27, 2012

Thursday (1/26) on the North Texas performing arts news site Theater Jones, Gregory Sullivan Isaacs writes, “A surprising announcement was made at a celebratory press conference at Cowboys Stadium on Thursday afternoon: The Dallas Opera and the Dallas Cowboys, together at last! Well, at least Cowboys Stadium will join forces with the Dallas Opera for what the press release called ‘…first classical music simulcast ever conducted in a North Texas sports venue.’ Best yet, it will be free of charge, with free parking. Seating will be reserved and the free tickets can be obtained through the Dallas Opera website, effective immediately, at www.dallasopera.org/cowboys. Even stranger, this event will be a simulcast of Mozart’s The Magic Flute, which seems like an unlikely candidate for the testosterone-laden stadium. … The simulcast will take place on April 28 at 7:30 p.m. (doors open at 6 p.m.) at the home of the Dallas Cowboys at One Legends Way in Arlington. The complete, unabridged live performance, will be projected on the world’s largest high-definition video board structure, comprised of four jaw-droppingly big viewing screens (the largest, 72 feet tall and 160 feet wide) suspended directly above the playing field.”
