Board of Trustees

Trustees serve as Dallas Opera ambassadors in the community and lend their expertise at three Board and Trustee meetings during the season. Trustees are charged with electing the Board of Directors and have the exclusive power to amend the company’s bylaws. Financial support received from and secured by the Trustees plays a significant role in the momentum and progress of The Dallas Opera, and we honor their ambassadorship in the community at the annual Appreciation Dinner.
