The Fabric of Opera presented by The Dallas Opera and NorthPark Center is a special exhibit of historic Dallas Opera costumes on display for the public at NorthPark Center on level one between Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom.

No matter how close to the stage you sit, you will never get a better look at the dazzling costumes that world-class singers wear when performing at The Dallas Opera. Come see this exhibit of 22 rarely-displayed historic costumes from the collection of The Dallas Opera Wardrobe Department.

These costumes for both men and women range from the exotic garb of an Egyptian King in Verdi's Aida to Victorian-period gowns designed for The Aspern Papers--with a multitude of styles in between. Although most of these magnificent costumes are the work of the company's longtime resident costume designer, the late Peter J. Hall, other designers are represented as well. The exhibit was curated by The Dallas Opera's Resident Set, Costume and Props Designer Tommy Bourgeois.
