All performances feature live accompaniment from the Dallas Opera Orchestra in Dallas and The Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra in Fort Worth.

The event is sponsored in part by the Amon G. Carter Foundation, The Moody Foundation, and an anonymous donor

Audiences of all ages will be wowed by the vivid costuming, magical storytelling, and dialogue that guides the family-friendly story of the puppet who just wants to be a “real boy.” With heartwarming characters that teach key moral lessons to children and adults alike, Pinocchio is sure to be a fan favorite.

The full-length, kid-friendly ballet has two acts and lasts approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes, including a 20-minute intermission. A “Wiggle Room” is available for restless children to play while still watching the performance via a screen or window.

Tickets range from $20-$125 and are available at texasballettheater.org or 877-828-9200.
