Opera at the Winspear

The Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House is a 200-seat performance space that hosts a variety of shows. With balconies covered in gold leaf, a spacious fly-tower, a three-square stage, and a classic, elegant design, you'll have a true "night at the opera" experience at this 21st-century reinterpretation of a traditional opera house.

Performances for Everyone

Construction of the opera house began in 2006, and the Winspear was later presented to the public with tours and performances during the opening week. The first opera performance took place on October 23, 2009, with Verdi's Otello, conducted by Graeme Jenkins

Whether you're going with friends, family, or by yourself, the Winspear has performance options that will fit your tastes! The main stage hosts traditional and vibrant performances, like "The Magic Flute," "The Golden Cockerel," and "The Barber of Seville." Some nights are reserved for family-friendly performances like "Doctor Miracle" and "The Bremen Town Musicians." Children and adults alike can enjoy an evening of opera performances at the Winspear.

Dinner Before the Show

Make your evening out complete with dinner plans at the Winspear. A pre-performance dining option is available, during which guests can enjoy dinner on the Skyline Terrace at the opera house before select performances. Paired with the evening's show, Wolfgang Puck Catering sets up a buffet for opera-goers. The price of the dinner is $25 per person. That includes buffet access, one dessert, one complimentary non-alcoholic drink, and discounted drinks at the Skyline Terrace bar.
