Dallas Opera Returning For Free Simulcast At AT&T Stadium
The Dallas Opera, in partnership with AT&T Stadium and with support from our presenting sponsor, The Dallas Foundation, is extremely proud to announce the company’s third stadium simulcast—the seventh free Dallas Opera simulcast since 2010.
Gene Jones, wife of Cowboys Owner, President and General Manager Jerry Jones, whose vision led to the Stadium’s museum-quality collection of contemporary art, helped announced the event Monday at the stadium in a press conference that also featured Dallas Opera general director and CEO Keith Cerny, The Dallas Foundation Board of Governors Valerie Freeman and Kevin Moriarty, artistic director of the Dallas Theater Center.
The Dallas Opera’s 2014 AT&T Stadium Simulcast of Italian composer Gioachino Rossini’s THE BARBER OF SEVILLE will take place the evening of Friday, April 11 at 7:30 p.m. (doors open at 6:00 p.m.) at AT&T Stadium. Patrons will be able to enjoy a complete live performance on the world’s largest high-definition video board structure, comprised of four massive viewing screens (the largest, 72 feet tall and 160 feet wide) suspended directly above the playing field.
At 7:00 p.m., prior to the live performance, the Dallas Opera will present another of the world’s largest cartoon screenings (based on screen size): a 1950 animation masterpiece from Warner Brothers Classics, “Rabbit of Seville” starring Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd and voted one of the greatest cartoons ever produced (in 1994, by a thousand members of the animation field).
