The new production of Wagner’s Das Rheingold from The Atlanta Opera will be filmed and released at a later date.

Livestreaming allows us to introduce The Dallas Opera to the global community on a larger scale than ever before,” said Ian Derrer, The Kern Wildenthal General Director and CEO. “We invite audiences to join us in Dallas, whether that be in-person or digitally, for a reimagined Opera experience, accessible to all.”

Patrons will have the opportunity to purchase digital tickets one month prior to the performance on a “Pay What You’re Able” basis with a $9.99 minimum ticket price. Behind-the-scenes content will be exclusive to viewers during the livestream.
