- TDO in a Suitcase at AT&T Stadium
The Dallas Opera would like to invite all student groups to the Barber of Seville simulcast at AT&T Stadium on April 11 and participate in a free TDO in a Suitcase just for kids to come and learn about opera in a manner that is both playful and welcoming. This presentation is geared towards kids who have never seen or heard an opera and who might otherwise find this new kind of musical language confusing or intimidating.
We will reserve a VIP section for kids to come and enjoy this program prior to the simulcast performance of The Barber of Seville. Admission and parking is free. We will also be providing a discounted dinner for participating children.

- Dress RehearsalsBe the first to see a TDO production! The TDO Dress Rehearsals program invites area middle school, high school and college teachers to introduce their students to opera. Teachers can bring their students to observe the artistic process at a working final dress rehearsal of a mainstage TDO production. These rehearsals begin at 7:30pm.
- TDOSightlinesAt the Winspear Opera House, a few areas of the performance hall have restricted views of the stage — and even though the acoustics are just as good as the rest of the house, these seats are hard to sell to the public. Our loss is your gain!
