    A display of two of Ft. Worth, Texas finest pieces of architecture, situated in the downtown.
    Published:
Nancy Lee and Perry R. Bass Performance Hall
Considered by many to be the "Crown Jewel" of Fort Worth, Texas architecture, the Hall was opened in 1998 and is able to house the symphony, ballet, opera, stage musicals and rock concerts.  It seats 2,056 people.  Built on the line of European opera houses, it has an 80 foot (24 meter) diameter  Great Dome with angels and white clouds artfully painted  on it by artists Scott and Stuart Gentling.  With angels as the theme through out the Performance Hall, there are two 48 foot tall angels sculpted by Marton Vero from Texas white limestone that grace the exterior Grand Facade. 
The Performance Hall, at first, appears out of place with its intricately carved limestone Facade next to downtown Ft. Worths steel and glass high rises.  It's beauty is so striking, though, that visitors and residents alike, will drive out of their way to get a view of it.
An early morning gaze upon these beauties is guaranteed to brighten one's day.
An evening performance approaches.  The white limestone turns to gold as the sun sets.
The six foot trumpets always "at the ready".
White on White.  Pure beauty.
An Evening to Remember.......surrounded by Angels.
