Spring is officially here — have you ever wanted anything to come so badly after this winter? — and that will mean festivals, patios and outdoor events will be packed. But, of course, there’s still plenty of indoor arts excitement to be had.
Look for a popular Fats Waller tribute at Jubilee Theatre, Wagner at the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, Stomp at Bass Hall and the much-anticipated Fort Worth Opera Festival, which will present two newer works, Silent Night and With Blood, With Ink.
And you’ll have chances for casual outdoor arts with the annual Main St. Fort Worth Arts Festival, Southlake’s Art in the Square and Mayfest.
Here is a guide to what’s going on in local performing arts this spring. As always, it’s not comprehensive; check your favorite venue or company’s website for additional events in North Texas.
