Two couples meet for a polite adult discussion about a playground incident involving their children in "God of Carnage." Within a few sentences, the grown-ups are sniping, snarking and slashing at each other, flaying concepts of social niceties and revealing their own base instincts. Perseverance Theatre's deliciously wicked and witty production wraps up this weekend with performances at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 4 p.m. Sunday in Sydney Laurence Theatre. Tickets are available at centertix.net.
The bride comes armed
Anchorage Opera presents three performances of "Lucia di Lammermoor" this weekend. The emotional and dramatic story set in gloomy Scotland involves love, lies, murder and madness -- and what's considered to be some of the best music ever written for an Italian opera. English translations will be projected above the stage. The overture starts at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 4 p.m. Sunday in the Discovery Theatre. Tickets are available at centertix.net.
Free day at museum
