People's Revolt's debut networking event, Business After Hours is coming to the Rooftop Event Spot in Downtown Plano on Tuesday, Oct. 23 at 6 p.m. The one-of-a-kind networking experience celebrates the process of breaking down the barriers and creating genuine relationships amongst business professionals through ice breakers, interactive activations, and purposeful conversation starters. It focuses on one universal experience: connecting. 

The concept for Business After Hours was largely inspired by the innate need for connections - both business and personal - between individuals. The mission of the event focuses on assisting in exploring three different avenues of relationship building: networking, friendship, and dating. Attendees can expect drinks, light bites, desserts, photo booth installations, headshots, tunes by DJ Snacks, and creative activities sponsored by See's Candies.

I will see you there! Purchase tickets here.

Mozart's The Magic Flute just premiered at the Dallas Opera on October 18th, and it was magnificent! A story that truly combines everything we love from fairytales - a prince and princess in love, an evil sorcerer, terrifying beasts, magic, comedy, and rich symbolism! Although The Magic Flute premiered in 1791, is set in ancient Egypt, and sung in German, its overarching themes are timeless, with reason and love triumphing over irrationality and evil. My personal favorites from The Magic Flute included the opening scene with the Three Ladies, Papageno's entire performance, and the Queen of the Night’s spectacular aria. I highly recommend seeing this in person, both opera expert or newcomer will be enamored by the storybook setting and performance. Running approximately 3 hours, The Magic Flute is a perfect start to the 2019/2020 season at the Dallas Opera.

Performances of The Magic Flute continue on October 20(m), 23, 26, and November 1 (The Enrico Foundation Perfor...

Our favorite time of the year! The heat is gone, Halloween is approaching, and...the Dallas Opera season is about to begin! Before it does, the Dallas Opera hosts a yearly event to celebrate all of their patrons that support the arts and allow them to sell tickets as low as $15 for students and ~$30 for young professionals. Without their generous support, there would be no opera!

As always, The Dallas Opera Patron Party was a fabulous affair! Hosted at the gorgeous home of Lisa and David Genecov, announcements included the news of a partnership with the Dallas Zoo and the presence of 2 and 4-legged animals at the First Night gala on October 18th. My personal wish is a tiger or bear, but I have yet to see a live grizzly and opera mix. This year's party was catered by the Spice of Life, and vodka distillery Wayward Son.

The incredible performance of the night was by singer Diana Newman, who sings the role of the First Lady in the Dallas Opera's upcoming production of THE MAGIC FLUTE (...

Ok, not RETNA exactly. That is to say, the RETNA that has catapulted from graffiti to fine art with his signature text-based work is not in Dallas. Rather, the man behind the name, Marquis Duriel Lewis, is exhibiting a new style that strays from text and into vivid portraiture that you'll see at the Goss-Michael Foundation. This exhibition is the first of many art-focused experiences by Dallas-based art collective, Artinity, created by Max Trowbridge, Joyce Goss and Kenny Goss.

In the past the Los Angeles-based artist has found fame in his text-based graffiti works, fetching up to $180,000 for his works and working with Chanel, Nike, and Louis Vuitton. While RETNA's style resembles modern hieroglyphics, as you can see here covering the side of the Restoration Hardware store in New York, Lewis creates abstract expressionist pieces inspired by freedom and fluidity.

This dynamic exhibition, titled “Dovetail Mortises & La Peluca Grande”, is far removed from his linear text-based wo...
