WATERTOWER’S NEW SEASON: WaterTower Theatre in Addison has announced the lineup for its 2013-14 season. Leading things off Oct. 11 is Hank Williams: Lost Highway. It’s followed by the regional premiere of The Game’s Afoot (Holmes for the Holiday). The new year begins with another regional premiere – a new adaptation of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. And the season rounds out with Spunk and a pair of regional premiere – Good People and the musical Dogfight. Details about each show are on the theater’s website.
TBT AND FWSO: It’s been five years since Texas Ballet Theater performed with the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra – an arrangement that ended due to budget cuts. Since then, TBT almost had to close up shop. The company still can’t afford the FWSO. But the two will be back together, if only for five performances, next season. May 30-June 1, 2014, the orchestra will team up with TBT for Swan Lake. As dfw.com reports, the collaboration is possible thanks to a gift from US Trust, Bank of America.
A STELLAR DEBUT: The Dallas Opera has announced that American mezzo-soprano Susan Graham is the winner of this year’s Maria Callas Debut Artist of the Year. If you’re an operagoer, her performance should be fairly fresh in your mind. She performed the role of Tina in Dominick Argento’s The Aspern Papers just a few weeks ago.
