On Saturday April 28th, The Dallas Opera, in partnership with Cowboys Stadium joined forces to bring the first classical music simulcast ever conducted in a North Texas sports venue, presented by The Dallas Foundation.
With this being a pioneer event of it’s kind, we wanted to get in on the BUZZ around this marriage of technology and opera. With BUZZcontrol, we were able to measure the CONVERSATION surrounding Jerry World.
According to The Dallas Opera, “The Dallas Opera, in partnership with Cowboys Stadium, drew an estimated fifteen thousand patrons to the Dallas Opera’s one-night-only April 28th Dallas Opera Cowboys Stadium Simulcast, presented by The Dallas Foundation, making it the best-attended opera stadium simulcast in Texas history. More than 34,000 ticket requests came in from throughout Texas and 26 additional states, Canada, and the District of Columbia.”
