The coming months hold some impressive choices for area arts patrons, no matter where you live.

There are Tony Award-magnet musicals (“Beautiful” at Bass Hall, and “Fun Home” at the Winspear Opera House); a couple of Cliburn gold medalists (this year’s winner, Yekwon Sunwoo at Bass Hall, and 1997’s honoree, Jon Nakamatsu, at Myerson Symphony Center); film screenings with live, orchestral soundtracks (“It’s a Wonderful Life” with the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, and “La La Land” and “Raiders of the Lost Ark” with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra); interestingly contrasting exhibitions at the museums (a Casanova-inspired show at the Kimbell, and an exhibition at the Amon Carter celebrating hunting and fishing) and a slew of world and regional premieres on theater and dance stages.

So this fall arts preview spills out the sort of cornucopia of talent and virtuosity that spoils us all over again about this time every year. Don’t miss out on what is sure to be a fall for feasting.

The calendar includes happenings through the end of the year. As usual, if you see something missing, please check your local event venue or arts group’s website.
