Dallas Opera
a resident opera company in Dallas
The Dallas Opera

Graeme Jenkins, Mrs. Eugene McDermott Music Director

In 1957, civic leaders worked diligently to found a resident opera company in Dallas, including Mr. and Mrs. Henry S. Miller, Jr., Dallas Morning News critic John Rosenfield, and William A. McKenzie. They approached Lawrence Kelly, formerly associated with Chicago's Lyric Theater, about establishing an opera company in Dallas. Mr. Kelly agreed to pursue that goal and the Dallas Civic Opera was chartered in March of 1957. Mr. Kelly named his long-time associate, Maestro Nicola Rescigno, as artistic director. The Dallas Civic Opera opened with an inaugural concert by legendary Greek soprano Maria Callas in November of that year, and a production of what was then a Rossini rarity, The Italian Girl in Algiers.

The Dallas Opera inaugurated performances in the Foster + Partners designed Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House at the AT&T Performing Arts Center in October of 2009 and adopted a semi-repertory format later in the same season.
