As part of Klyde Warren Park's second anniversary celebration, the Dallas Opera will present the second annual “Dallas Opera Opening Night Simulcast in the Park” featuring Mozart’s class-conscious romantic comedy, The Marriage of Figaro. The event will include activities getting underway at 6:30 pm, followed by the live performance originating from the Winspear Opera House at 8 pm.
The live performance will be projected on two high-definition LED screens. The public is encouraged to arrive early to secure their spot on the lawn, and are invited to parade their most hideous bridesmaid gowns as they vie for special prizes and a chance to attend the rockin’ First Night After Party.
Other entertainment includes backstage interviews with the cast and production team of The Marriage of Figaro, a “Bouquet Toss” from the Klyde Warren Park stage with prizes stashed inside wedding-themed floral arrangements and a showing of the 1945 Three Stooges classic, Micro-Phonies, a 17-minute short starring Curly, Moe and Larry, along with guest star Christine McIntyre, in a hilarious, slapstick send-up of opera and the recording industry.
