Opera Arlington, the dream city opera


 Opera that inspires in Arlington, Texas.

Opera Arlington was formed to educate, inspire, challenge, amaze, nurture and empower artists and audiences by presenting quality opera performances that foster a more interculturally-conscious and compassionate community in Arlington and the Dallas–Fort Worth Metroplex.




Opera Arlington proudly presents Rusalka, Dvořák's fairytale masterpiece!

Based on Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Mermaid, this magical tale will transport you into a fantasy forest, where a water nymph yearns for the love of a human prince, and an evil witch plots her downfall. But is it the witch's curse that will bring her demise, or the fickleness of the human heart?

Immerse yourself in Antonín Dvořák's breathtaking melodies and witness a cast of DFW's opera stars in this monumental Czech opera from the year 1900. Presented with Jaroslav Kvapil's original Czech text with English supertitles, this production will be performed with chamber orchestra (arranged by Michael Withers), conducted by Jason Lim and directed by Eliza Escalante.
