[OPERA] FRIDAY-SATURDAY, MAY 17-18
Human expectation and the descent into madness are themes behind this modern opera, which depicts a literal stroll through a park. The original story combines many operatic styles and languages, paired with classical composers such as Mozart, Puccini, Wagner, Gershwin and Weil, and includes the famous breakdown scene from Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor. 8 p.m.; Onyx Theatre, 953 E. Sahara Ave. No. 16, www.onyxtheatre.com, 732-7225, $15.
