Best View in the House

by Suzanne Calvin

I’ve heard plenty of discussions and a wide variety of opinions about “the best seat in the new house,” but the fact remains that nothing compares to being right there onstage with these fabulous artists, in the middle of the action.

And now’s your chance. This evening, the Dallas Opera will stage an open casting call for supernumeraries for the upcoming season. Supers, as they are better known, wear wonderful costumes, react to the action, enjoy occasional moments at centerstage and witness it all. There are paid positions (more or less anyway) with tickets to bribe you, too.

For more information or to participate, contact Production Assistant Tai Renfrow at 214.443.1037 or

So, let that inner lady-in-waiting, angry peasant, milkmaid, courtier, nobleman or party-goer come to the surface and take your chances on a role in an upcoming Dallas Opera production!

One Response to Best View in the House

I know the subject of this post is “best view in the house.” The best view in the house hardly means a thing, however, to those who sit where it’s the “worst view in the house.” There are many just and due accolades poured onto the new opera house. It is a beautiful and well equipped house from a technical/production standpoint. However, I am finding as a “viewer” of the production, the lowest priced, high level of seating in which my seats are located, can’t begin to compare to the lowest priced season tickets in the Fair Park facility. For the last two seasons in Fair Park, I had an excellent view of the stage and was perfectly satisfied. I am not finding the Winspear experience nearly as satisfying.
