There's something about attending a performance at the Winspear Opera House that inspires glitz and glam. The Dallas Opera's opening night there — a red-carpet affair, chaired by Dallasite turned New York social Julia Moore — aroused plenty of black-tie glamour from everyone in attendance. Our applause goes to Moore's custom-designed Oscar de la Renta gown (he referenced the Winspear's architectural glass structure in creating the dress) and the ovation-worthy performance of Mozart’s Don Giovanni starring Tony Award winner Paulo Szot. Post-opera, fans including Cindy and Charles Feld, Ellen Winspear, Walt Roper, and Kim Whitman progressed to a seated dinner. As for an encore, we're anxiously awaiting the Dallas Opera Gala on Friday, April 8.
