Fort Worth - Bass Hall & Sundance Square

The Bass Performance Hall building - situated not far from Sundance Square - is quite spectacular. Its facade, with two majestic angels, curved in Texas limestone, catches the attention of passersby. You simply cannot miss it. I like it a lot! The angels seem to announce: 'Hark! Great events take place here! Time to enjoy the art of music and dance!'

We have visited it quite a few times -  to see various ballet performances, including 'The Nutcracker' and 'Swan Lake' by Tchaikovsky. Such splendid experiences...

The Bass Hall interior is quite beautiful too - the paintings on the ceiling make it look as if it was a see-through roof.

The Bass Performance Hall area - Sundance Square of Fort Worth is also worth mentioning. It was named after Sundance Kid, member of Butch Cassidy's gang (train and bank robbers). The square mural, quite a piece of art, which you can see in the picture below, marks the Fort Worth part of the Chisholm Trail (used to drive cattle overland from Texas to Kansas  - from 1867 to 1875).

What are your favorite places in For Worth? Which ones would you like to visit?
