Puccini’s ‘Manon Lescaut’ kicks off 2019 for the Dallas Opera
Since its publication as a novel nearly three centuries ago, Manon Lescaut has been one of the raciest stories of a party girl who lives life excessively … and not too wisely. It has been adapted into a ballet as well as three operas. And while Massenet’s opera is the most famous, it is Puccini’s — one of the master’s earliest works — that the Dallas Opera will treat audiences to this week. Kristin Lewis, pictured, stars as the doomed woman in a production updated to the 20th century.

Del Shores spills the tea in his world premiere one-man show
Everyone knows that if you stir the shit, you’re gonna spill the tea… which is no doubt what Del Shores had in mind when he came up with the title for his latest one-man show, Del Shores: The Sh*t Stirrer. The Sordid Lives creator brings back his dishy, profane, hilarious anecdotes to the Rose Room for this world premiere. “I have been having a love affair with Dallas for years,” the native Texan says of his home-away-from-home, so it figures he’d debut the performance here. And, he promises, “this one probably has something to offend everyone.”
