    The theatre was named after Nancy Lee and Perry R Bass who donated the 40,000 sqft piece of land for the building and established a $10m endowment.

    Two 48ft tall angels sculptured from Texas limestone arch up the façade. It has been called ‘the last great hall built in the 20th century’.

    This building is a real jewel in the city. It was built entirely with private funds of $67.5m and is the permanent home to the Ft Worth Symphony Orchestra, Ft Worth Dallas Ballet and the Ft Worth Opera. The hall holds 2,056 patrons and is designed in a class European opera house form with an 80ft diameter dome topping the Founders Concert Theatre with 6 levels arranged horseshoe shaped ties and four piano boxes which exist in no other performance space in the world.
