The Winspear Opera House

If you’ve ever wondered what the hell that big, red, round thing in the Arts District is, we’re here to inform you that it’s our world-renowned Winspear (not to be confused with Winstar -- that’s another behemoth of a structure, albeit a considerably less cultured one). A modern interpretation of the typical opera house, it’s home to both The Dallas Opera and the Texas Ballet Theater, and it’s pretty damned majestic. Not an opera fan? It has also hosted plenty of other events, like NPR’s Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me! and standup from iconic comedian Jerry Seinfeld.
