The Dallas Symphony Orchestra’s Soluna Festival has kicked off in Dallas and runs through June 4, featuring a mix of DFW-based performing arts groups as well as international performers.
This is the third year for the festival that offers collaborative performances from pop music and contemporary art. This year’s theme is “dreams and illusions.”
The theme for the third year of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra’s Soluna Festival is “dreams and illusions.”
Included among the performances are this weekend’s Dallas Black Dance Theatre’s Spring Celebration and the Dallas Theater Center’s ongoing production of Electra, D Magazine reported.
Among the events closely tied to the theme is Dreamscape, which will be at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center on May 24. D Magazine said it evokes a feeling of a dream via audiovisual work and performers from the Bruce Wood Dance Project, each dressed in “wearable poetry.”
On June 1, Rossy de Palma’s Traveling Lady, will feature a multimedia show in which the Spanish actress and muse for director Pedro Almodovar tries to express the essence of journalist Nellie Bly, according to D Magazine. Bly — real name Elizabeth Cochran Seaman — was a groundbreaking investigative journalist in the early 1900s.
SOLUNA FESTIVAL WILL FEATURE MEMORIAL DAY CONCERT
The Dallas Observer noted that this year, the festival seems to be emphasizing family-friendly offerings, including Dallas Dreams Big on May 30 and the return on May 28 of Passport to the Park, a multidisciplinary day of family-friendly performances and activities at Klyde Warren Park.
On May 29, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra will hold its annual Memorial Day concert and fireworks display.
