The world’s greatest lover is in the house. The Winspear Opera house in Dallas, that is.
A trio of really bad characters has made its way into our lives. Anger, Frustration and Hatred have set up shop in our radios, televisions and on our computers via the Internet. They thrive in congested traffic, at four-way stop signs and in long lines at the grocery store. They boil over on talk radio and nightly cable news networks. They especially delight in the current environment in our nation’s capitol.
When The Community Players launched their debut season in 1980, they used a whodunit play called “The Butler Did It,” by Tim Kelly. Now, 30 years later, they’re using the same play – set to music.
The last time I experienced acoustics as perfect as those of the Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House was in the summer of 1969, when I saw a performance of the play “Antigone” in the 15,000 seat outdoor theater in Epidaurus, Greece, one of the most acoustically perfect spots on the planet.
