AT&T Performing Arts Center

 

The AT&T Performing Arts Center is a nonprofit foundation that operates and programs three premier performance venues and a 10-acre park for music, opera, theatre and dance in the heart of downtown Dallas. Opened in October 2009, the Center helped complete the 30-year vision of the Dallas Arts District.

 

Audiences enjoy the best and most recent from Broadway with the Lexus Broadway Series; the finest in world dance and music co-presented with TITAS; top concerts, lectures and performers with Center Presents; and a five-year undertaking to present The Complete Works of William Shakespeare. The Center also presents a wide range of free programming for audiences from every part of Dallas, including Patio Sessions concerts, Sunset Screenings, Local Motion fitness programs and Studio 2403, dance classes in Sammons Park. The Center makes performance art accessible to thousands of local students through its education program, Open Stages. Through a variety of special programs and benefits, the Center’s members and volunteers are able to become involved and engaged in the arts.

Five esteemed resident companies utilize the Center’s performance spaces: Anita N. Martinez Ballet Folklorico, Dallas Black Dance Theatre, The Dallas Opera, Dallas Theater Center and Texas Ballet Theater.

 

These performance spaces are some of the finest venues in the world, designed by internationally acclaimed architectural firms:

 

  • Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House, designed by Foster + Partners of London, is a stunning 2,200 seat venue wrapped in red glass with outstanding acoustic performance halls.

 

  • Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre, a 575-seat theatre with a distinctive aluminum exterior, is home to one of the most versatile stages in the world designed by REX/OMA, Joshua Prince-Ramus (partner in charge) and Rem Koolhaas.
  • Elaine D. and Charles A. Sammons Park, an urban park designed by Michel Desvigne with native plants and grasses, landscaped lawns, performance spaces, a reflecting pool, and an Information Center by Foster + Partners.
  • Annette Strauss Square, an open-air entertainment venue with lawn and patio seating for 2,000 designed by Foster + Partners, under a starlit sky and surrounded by the downtown skyline.

 

The Center’s mission is to provide a public gathering place that strengthens community and fosters creativity through the presentation of performing arts and arts education programs.
