In Greek mythology, the God of the Sea is Poseidon. Triton (the name given to the Sea King), however, is one of his sons.

Plan Your Trip

The first step in planning your trip to the Music Hall is to buy your tickets. Next you will need directions to the Music Hall and parking information. You could also skip both of those and take the DART green line to the Fair Park station close to the Music Hall.

For a nice meal before your performance we recommend M Dining at the Music Hall or perhaps a nearby restaurant. Dining at the Music Hall serves a sumptuous buffet before each performance. Reservations are recommended, but not required; call 214-413-3940.

If you are coming from out of town, you might also want to choose from a nearby hotel.

We hope you enjoy your trip to the Music Hall at Fair Park! Enjoy the show!
