Bass Hall VP looks back at its 25 years of impact on Fort Worth RICH LOPEZ | Staff email@example.com Whether you are in formal wear or in jeans, the classic architecture and luxe interior of Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth make every visit feel special.
From Broadway shows to contemporary concerts, the venue offers an array of performances on its mainstage, and this year marks its 25th anniversary of doing so.
Home to Cowtown’s major companies — including the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, the Fort Worth Opera, the Cliburn concerts and international piano competition and the Texas Ballet Theater — the hall celebrates its landmark year by bringing the arts to downtown Fort Worth.
On May 1, 1998, the Nancy Lee and Perry R. Bass Performance Hall opened, built entirely with private funds. The 2,042-seat hall was designed in classic European opera house form, with its 80-foot diameter Great Dome atop the Founders Concert Theater and two 48-foot-tall angels at the building’s Grand Facade which are now among Fort Worth’s iconic signature landmarks.
