Meyerson Symphony Center

 

As part of their Pops Series, the Dallas Syphony Orchestra, under the direction of Jeff Tyzik, will present the Mambo Kings.

Dallas Symphony Orchestra Presents: Mozart’s Magnificent Voyage

Meyerson Symphony Center

 

This popular story in the Classical Kids series features Mozart’s young son, Karl, who longs to be taken from his boarding school to spend more time with his famous father. An old travelling trunk serves as a magic chest that reveals an incredible journey back in time to Mozart’s childhood and into the fantastic world of Mozart’s great opera The Magic Flute.

 

 

May 16-18

Into the Woods

Winspear Opera House

 

Venture back Into The Woods as the Dodgers (Jersey Boys, Matilda) team up with Networks (Phantom of the Opera, War Horse, South Pacific) to present the acclaimed Fiasco Theater production that became New York’s surprise hit of this season. Unanimously acclaimed, extended twice at the Roundabout’s Laura Pels Theater, the Tony Award®-winning musical classic by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine has been mounted with boundless imagination. This witty and wildly theatrical re-invention is Into The Woods like you’ve never seen it before!

Including dazzling songs like “Children Will Listen” and “No One Is Alone,” this thrillingly clever new version made Ben Brantley of The New York Times fall “head over heels.” Mind the wolf, heed the witch and honor the giant in the sky at this extraordinary musical about the power of wishes and what really happens after they come true.

 

Exhibitions and Happenings

 

 

May 3-5

Zim Sculpt

The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden

“ZimSculpt,” a world renowned exhibition of modern Zimbabwean stone sculptures, features over 200 sculptures on display. This is the largest collection ever assembled for a show in the U.S.  Known as Shona sculpture, these contemporary pieces can be as large as seven feet tall and are hand carved from stone, as hard as granite, and often weigh tons.

In addition, two Zimbabwe sculptors will accompany the show and demonstrate their artistry in the Pecan Grove Market Place, and offer hands-on classes to guests. Their work will be available to purchase along with other items from other sculptors.

 

May 5

Fearing’s Cinco De Mayo Party
The Angelika and Magnolia Theater

 

Fearing’s new Barrel Select Patrón Tequila will begin pouring on May 5, coinciding with the restaurant’s first-ever Cinco de Mayo party.

Fearing’s Barrel Select has a collaborative back-story, as Chef Dean Fearing and his team traveled to Patrón’s headquarters and to its premium blue agave fields in the hills of Jalisco, Mexico. Their mission was to work hand-in-hand with the brand’s Master Distiller to identify a single barrel of añejo tequila for use in Fearing’s new signature Barrel Select. The restaurant team worked directly alongside Patrón team members at their copper stills, where a labor-intensive process resulted in a personally-designed Fearing’s tequila aged for a full year in hybrid-wood barrels.

 

 

May 6

Kentucky Derby 

Lone Star Park

 

Lone Star Park will present the 143rd running of the Kentucky Derby, simulcast live from Churchill Downs. In addition to the simulcast event, Lone Star Park will host the Kentucky Derby Best Hat Contest with celebrity judges for a chance to win multiple prizes. One winner in each category, “Most Stylish” and “Most Creative,” will receive $500, with an additional three winners receiving “A Day at the Races” package for Honorable Mention.

Perot Museum

Maya: Hidden Worlds Revealed is the largest traveling exhibition about the Maya ever to tour the U.S. Presented by Highland Capital Management, the exhibition brings together more than 200 authentic artifacts and immersive environments to explore the astonishing accomplishments of one of the most powerful indigenous Mesoamerican civilizations, that still has millions of living descendants today.

Through hands-on activity stations, guests can decipher hieroglyphs, learn cultural and architectural techniques, and explore an underworld cave, ancient burial site, mural room and more.

 

May 13 and 14

James and the Giant Peach

Dallas Children’s Theater

Young James Henry Trotter’s resilience is tested when he is sent off to live with his mean aunts, Spiker and Sponge, after a chain of unfortunate incidents. Life is no fun at all there until he accidentally spills some tiny green things on a tree, and…voila, a giant peach! When James and his new oversized friends – Grasshopper, Centipede, Ladybug, Earthworm, and Spider- snip the steam of the peach, the quest for happiness and great adventure lands them in New York City and at the center of attention. Of its premiere one reporter wrote, “Move heaven and earth to see this wonderful adaptation!”
