How to Fest

Enhance your experience!

The Fort Worth Opera Festival takes place during four magical weeks each spring, and we want you to join us! We not only pride ourselves in creating outstanding productions that you're sure to love, but also ensuring that your Festival experience is elevated to beyond just seeing the shows. So how do we do this?

To enhance your Fort Worth Opera experience, we offer a wide variety of social and educational opportunities:

Opera Previews - learn more about the story of each opera before you see it. What's even better is this is FREE for all!

Grand Opening and special performance dinners - enjoy a delicious dinner with your fellow opera-lovers before the show begins. Maybe you'll even get to dine with the stars! For more information, contact Jen Appleman at

Guided Bass Hall Tours - get a new perspective with a sneak peek backstage! This event is free, but space is available on a first-come first-served basis and limited to the first 30 people who arrive.

After Show Lounge - enjoy a cocktail or two while you mix and mingle with the stars of the shows in the Mezzanine Lobby, another free event!

For the entertainment seekers, the cultural adventurers, and the music lovers - this is an immersive opera experience like none other.

One great way to keep up to date about our social and educational opportunities is to
sign up for our e-newsletter. We also will send you exclusive special offers and interesting tidbits about the operas.

We'll see you at the opera!
