The Dallas Contemporary has a new home, a new director (Jerome will tell you more about him later this week) and a new show opening this weekend. Perfect time to offer one lucky Art&Seek e-newsletter subscriber a membership to the Contemporary.
On Nov. 17, Michael Feinstein and Nicole Henry will perform “The American Songbook” as part of the Jazz Roots series. Then on Friday, TITAS brings Hubbard Street Dance Chicago to town. And for this week’s Big Deal, we’ve got tickets to give away to each show.
Today in the roundup: Lyle Lovett loves Fort Worth, Elton John’s North Texas ex and a notable theater death.
So what’s 50 Cent been up to lately? Apparently popping out of closets to guest star in people’s homemade lip-syncing videos.
On Thursday night, the Dallas Center for Architecture will hold its annual Rockitecture fundraiser. Tickets are $75-$125, but the DCA folks have generously handed over a pair to us to give away.
Today in the roundup: A real-life mystery, Spalding Gray goes to college and inside the artist studio.
The Houston Grand Opera’s current offering pairs what is probably the most popular of all operas with what is arguably the greatest of all English operas. Both Madame Butterfly and Peter Grimes come off well, though the latter is the most consistent success.
Pianists Vladimir Feltsman has performed everywhere from the White House to Carnegie Hall. And on Nov. 16, he’ll perform at Bass Hall as part of the Cliburn Concerts series. If you’re a piano fan, this sounds like a must. And lucky for you, the Cliburn Foundation has generously given us some tickets to giveaway.
