At NorthPark Center, some mannequins are dressed in Victorian garb. Others are dressed, rather convincingly, like Egyptian royalty. These figures are not in store windows, they are part of a new costume exhibit from the Dallas Opera.
On view through Nov. 4, these historic Dallas Opera costumes showcase designers. "The Fabric of Opera" is a free public art display offering a unique representation of the Opera's 60-year legacy. The displays include nearly two dozen costumes worn by some of the greatest opera artists of the 20th and 21st centuries.
