When Dallas’ newly designed Arts District went officially online four years ago, it promised to be a kind of clearinghouse for the arts community, a place where patrons could congregate to see opera, music, theater and dance in one place. Well, that promise has come to fruition in an inventive way.
Early this morning, Mayor Mike Rawlings announced the D-PASS, the Dallas Performing Arts Subscription Series, which unites seven Dallas arts organizations in an effort to expand the performing arts in the area. Starting with a three-show package at $75, and increasing in $25 increments to all seven shows, the D-PASS allows you to decide which shows you want to see and get them for a flat rate (fees are included). “These packages are a creative way to share great performances with new audiences,” the mayor said.
The package, which will be available now through Jan. 15, allows you to choose any combination of the following shows (three as a minimum).
Dallas Opera — The Barber of Seville.
Dallas Symphony Orchestra — Bernadette Peters in concert.
Dallas Theater Center — Fortress of Solitude.
Dallas Summer Musicals — Disney’s The Little Mermaid.
ATTPAC/Lexus Broadway Series — Godspell.
TITAS — Motionhouse.
Dallas Black Dance Theatre — Cultural Awareness.
