Marriage of Figaro

Sun., Nov. 19, 2:30 p.m.

To many, this Mozart comedy is the greatest opera of all time. Loaded with sweeping compositions from the grand master of classical composition, at 200 years old The Marriage of Figaro is a playful tale that will appease opera veterans and newbies alike. Mischief, mayhem and redemption are the themes of the night. Though the opera is sung in Italian, fear not — English supertitles will be projected above the stage so you’ll never miss a moment of tongue-and-cheek melodrama. $119

Daniel Caesar

Sun., Nov. 19, 8 p.m.

If you’re going to title your debut record Freudian you better be smooth as fuck. In the case of Canadian R&B singer-songwriter Daniel Caesar’s gospel-ified ’90s vibes, smooth doesn’t begin to describe his mastery. Embracing his full range of influences both spiritually and musically, Caesar’s velveteen crooning from the club’s pulpit is texturally mature for a debut LP from a 22-year-old. After receiving a nod from Rolling Stone, calling his 2014 EP Praise Break one of the best R&B albums of the year, we don’t doubt that Freudian will solidify Caesar as a contender for the long haul. $15-18

American Landscape

Mondays-Sundays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Continues through April 8, 2018

You don’t often hear about the LGBTQ+ civil rights fight in the context of Arab peoples, so it’s especially interesting to see the museum offer this show. At the center of it all is artist Nabil Mousa, an artist born in Syria but raised in a conservative Christian household in the United States. His willingness to use art as a way to comment on the religious and political has met with some controversy, such as a work of his that was banned from a public building at Grand Rapids’ ArtPrize two years ago. But the new show of his art is filled with the color orange, which Mousa uses to symbolize fear. ("Orange alert," anyone?) Runs through April 8, 2018.
