About the Winspear

The venue is a 21st-century reinterpretation of the traditional “horseshoe” shaped opera house, engineered specifically for opera and musical theatre, with stages equipped for ballet and other types of dance. The Winspear is designed by Foster + Partners under Pritzker prize-winning architect Norman Foster and Deputy Chairman Spencer de Grey.

The entrance to the Winspear Opera House features the Annette and Harold Simmons Signature Glass Facade, which ascends 60 feet, creating a seamless visual appearance between the vibrant red glass panels of the McDermott Performance Hall and the surrounding Sammons Park. Radiating from the Winspear Opera House on all sides, the Sky Canopy provides shade to the Simmons Glass Facade over three acres of Sammons Park, defining new outdoor spaces for visitors to gather.

The principal performance space, the Margaret McDermott Performance Hall, features retractable screens, a spacious fly-tower, a large proscenium stage with generous side and rear stage areas and variable acoustics. It accommodates 2,200 patrons.
