As the impeccably dressed men and women of Dallas, champagne in-hand, stroll through the Meyerson Symphony Center while orchestral melodies fill the space, it’s easy to feel like any minute a super villain will bust through the windows awaiting a confrontation with Batman or simply to snag a damsel in distress for a little tied-to-a-chair-in-a-lair action.
The Dallas Symphony Gala Concert & After-Party is just that fancy.It’s one of our favorite social events of the year where we always feel way more important than we actually are. The black-tie event features a who’s who of the Dallas social scene and for one night we can join their ranks. This year will be no exception as superstar pianist Lang Lang performs with Jaap van Zweden and the Dallas Symphony Orchestra.
Tickets start at a moderately priced $93, which includes the concert and admission to the epic after-party with an open bar, extravagantly decadent desserts and tunes from DJ Steffi Burns overlooking a bustling dance floor. There will be mini Ritz-Carlton spa experiences, too, and a photo booth to capture the spectacle of the evening in pics to make everyone in your social media circles adequately envious.
It’s easily the best way to experience the DSO and feel like royalty all at the same time.
So yes, it’s ok to wear your tiara.
