Performance on a Grand Scale: Bass Hall

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

A preeminent cultural icon of the Dallas-Fort Worth community, the Nancy Lee and Perry R. Bass Performance Hall is the permanent home to major performing arts organizations of Fort Worth: the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, Texas Ballet Theater, Fort Worth Opera, and the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition and Cliburn Concerts. Occupying a full city block in downtown Fort Worth, the Bass Performance Hall was built in 1998 entirely with private funds.
 
Go backstage on a tour that spotlights the ornate limestone architecture of the 2,056-seat multipurpose Hall, which is typical of the classic European opera house form. The Hall takes center stage for its superb acoustics, exceptional sight lines, and ambience, on level with the great halls of the world. Designed by David M. Schwarz/Architectural Services, Inc., the building includes an 80-foot diameter Great Dome, artfully painted by Scott and Stuart Gentling, which tops the Founders Concert Theater. Two 48-foot tall angels, sculpted out of Texas limestone by Marton Varo, embellish the Grand Façade. As you behold the beauty of this grand hall, imagine the performances held here in Fort Worth, Texas.
