Visit the Kimbell Art Museum on Sunday, May 8 for Mother's Day in the Fort Worth Cultural District! Spend an afternoon visiting the Fort Worth Museums.
The Kimbell Art Museum and the Fort Worth Opera are pleased to present “Behind the Curtain: A Conversation with Stars of the Fort Worth Opera Festival,” on Sunday, May 8, at 2 p.m., in the Museum auditorium.
This Free in Fort Worth event will feature countertenors Randall Scotting, Michael Maniaci, and José Álvarez, from the Fort Worth Opera Festival production of Handel’s Julius Caesar. Visitors will enjoy live music and discussion followed by a light reception on the Museum’s west portico. The event is free and requires no reservations. Priority seating available for Kimbell members and Fort Worth Opera ticket holders who arrive at least 20 minutes before the commencement of the program. Seating is limited.
The 2011 Festival will run May 14–June 5 and include three productions at Bass Performance Hall––Il Trovatore, Julius Caesar, and The Mikado––as well as a special production of Hydrogen Jukebox presented at the Hardy and Betty Sanders Theater at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center. Julius Caesar will mark two firsts for the Festival: it will be the first Baroque piece performed during the event, and it will be the first time countertenors have been cast in a Festival production.
