With it we hope to make this legendary event even more accessible to the community by providing additional avenues and opportunities for learning. ??? For 15 years D Magazine has avidly supported and protected the progress and growth of the arts and humanities in Dallas. Our support of Ramses the Great is further acknowledgement of our commitment to the cultural future of our city. ???Please join us for one or all of these lectures. We promise a fact-filled adventure into the ancient world of the Pharaoh, a world filled with mystery, magic and imagination.
