For anyone who loves the opera but can't afford full season tickets, your day has arrived. Single-ticket sales for the upcoming 2013-2014 Dallas Opera season, dubbed "By Love Transformed," start Monday, July 8.
Ticket buyers have their choice of four planned productions — Carmen (October 25-November 10), Death and the Powers (February 12-16, 2014), Die tote Stadt (The Dead City) (March 21-April 6, 2014), and The Barber of Seville (March 28-April 13, 2014). All productions take place at Winspear Opera House.
Individual tickets start for as low as $19 and can be purchased through the Dallas Opera's website or by calling 214-443-1000. Additionally, reduced season ticket packages go on sale the same day, allowing people to pick the same seats for two or three of the productions instead of all four.
The 2013-2014 season includes a couple of special events, including a free simulcast at Klyde Warren Park of the season-opening performance of Carmen, and a collaboration with the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, including a special exhibit at the Perot, to coincide with Death and the Powers.
