The Dallas Cowboys have had trouble even looking like football players the past few years, and now we'll see if a bunch of singers can tackle.
Jerry Jones' beloved NFL franchise is handing over the keys to his 100,000-seat pigskin palace to members of the Dallas Opera.
Cowboys Stadium will become the first football venue in North Texas to play host to an opera, according to Pegasus News. Mozart's legendary opera "The Magic Flute" will be performed this April on the same field Tony Romo throws interceptions.
Only about 7,500 stadium seats will be made available for fans of the arts, but those in attendance will be able to view The Magic Flute simulcast on the world's largest center-hung video board. Everything's bigger in the Republic of Texas, and Cowboys Diamond Vision stretches from 20-yard line to 20-yard line and would take 4,920 52-inch flat panel TVs to equal in size. The video board will show subtitles with The Magic Flute, which is performed in German.
Jones and his wife, Gene, are working hard to make Cowboys Stadium a sports venue AND art house. Although the Cowboys have some of the most expensive tickets in the NFL, the opera will be free. Concession stands will allow fans to enjoy nachos, hot dogs, pretzels and beer with the opera.
With Cowboys Stadium not built for the arts, the Dallas Opera will haul in its own sound system for the event.
The Cowboys only schedule for eight regular-season home games and a couple of unwatchable exhibition games each year, so the stadium has booked a number of non-football events.
The Art of Cowboys Stadium, AMA Supercross, Monster Jam monster trucks, Professional Bull Riders "Iron Cowboy III," Great Big Texas Home Show, Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw concerts, and even an event from former Fox News personality Glen Beck have filled Cowboys Stadium's offseason calendar of events.
