Dallas Opera presents Moby-Dick Simulcast
Moby-Dick, which opened in a blaze of glory in 2010, has been met with thunderous applause and critical acclaim in ports of call around the world since its maiden voyage at The Dallas Opera. Composer Jake Heggie and librettist Gene Scheer based their work on Herman Melville’s epic tale of Captain Ahab’s obsession with the great white whale, Moby-Dick.
The simulcast will include a Family Activity Zone from 4:30-6:30 pm. Activities will include:
- A “Show and Tell” session featuring actual props from the Dallas Opera production of Moby-Dick
- A scavenger hunt in the park
- A Moby-Dick-inspired photo opportunity
- Additional educational activities and crafts
The pre-performance festivities (beginning at 6:30 pm) will include opportunities for trivia lovers to win prizes, as well as a special screening of the 1948 Warner Brothers cartoon “Buccaneer Bunny,” directed by Fritz Freleng and pitting a cheerfully cheeky Bugs Bunny against frustrated Pirate Yosemite Sam.
