The AT&T Performing Arts Center’s mission is to be a vibrant cultural hub that provides, operates and activates exceptional spaces for artists, artistic organizations and our community.
There is no better place to explore and experience live performing arts than the AT&T Performing Arts Center in the Dallas Arts District. On its vibrant 10-acre downtown campus, the nonprofit Center operates three of the nation’s finest performance venues: the Winspear Opera House, Wyly Theatre, Strauss Square and the welcoming public green space, Sammons Park.
The Center invites you to explore by the best in live theatre, opera, pop, ballet, comedy, cutting-edge speakers and the finest dance companies from across the globe. The Center’s stages are a launching pad for world premieres and an incubator for the city’s emerging arts groups. And this is where you can see the award-winning work of its five resident companies: Anita N. Martinez Ballet Folklorico, Dallas Black Dance Theatre, The Dallas Opera, Dallas Theater Center and Texas Ballet Theater. In 2009, the Center entered into a coproducing partnership with TITAS/DANCE UNBOUND, to bring an unparalleled display of the world’s best dance companies to Dallas audiences.
The Center serves our community through a range of donor and sponsor supported programs. Each year thousands of students experience our arts education programs which lets students both explore the arts and boost education outcomes. Our community programs help ensure access to the arts for Dallas families who have been culturally underserved.
