America’s Got Opera Talent

Think you have an ear for talent? Check yourself against the pros at The Dallas Opera Vocal Guild’s 25th Vocal Competition. On Saturday, 19 hopeful young singers compete on the Winspear’s stage (2403 Flora St.) for $20,000 in cash prizes, bragging rights and a chance to launch their operatic careers. All of the contestants in this competition have Texas ties, and all of them will show off their vocal virtuosity and personal flair for the dramatic for the prestigious panel of judges. You can just judge silently and for free. The semifinals get going at 11:30 a.m. and the finals happen at 7:30 p.m. Since there’s no ticket fee, pop in and out as you like. To sweeten the deal, The Dallas Opera is offering discounted parking passes ($5 instead of the usual $15) on its website. Go to for more information.
