Bass Performance Hall

Back to the album index

This impressive showpiece was completed in 1998.  It sits on a full  city block of downtown Fort Worth.  Built in classic Eropean opera house form, the 2,056 seat hall has an 80-foot diameter dome and 48-foot tall angels sculpted from Texas limestone on the Grand Facade.  Six seating levels in the audience chamber are arranged in horseshoe-shaped tiers, including two piano boxes which exist in no other performance space in the world.

An impressive list of performers and performances wee listed on the calendar of events.  The ticket prices were just as impressive.  They do have to pay for their fancy new hall, I guess.
