Love Never Dies

Tuesdays-Saturdays, 8-10:30 p.m. Continues through Oct. 29
,

The year is 1907. It is 10 years after his disappearance from the Paris Opera House and the Phantom has escaped to a new life in New York where he lives amongst the screaming joy rides and freak-shows of Coney Island. In this new electrically-charged world, he has finally found a place for his music to soar. All that is missing is his love – Christine Daaé. Now one of the world’s finest sopranos, Christine is struggling in an ailing marriage to Raoul.

Ragamala: Written in Water

Fri., Oct. 20, 8 p.m.

This live music and dance experience created by Ranee and Aparna Ramaswamy is based on a second century Indian board game called Paramapadam and the 12th century Persian epic The Conference of the Birds. In addition, the whole thing is about spiritual ascension, so admittedly, there is a lot going on. The whole thing is rooted in South Indian Bharatanatyam classical dance and will employ paintings by Chennai-based visual artist Keshav projected on the stage floor. Don’t be intimidated, though, the performance will be both colorful and beautiful.

Starts at 8 p.m.; 121 Fletcher St., Ann Arbor; ums.org; 734-764-2538; Tickets start at $26. $26

PVRIS North American Tour

Fri., Oct. 20, 7 p.m.

“Get acquainted with the mysteriously awesome PVRIS before they become the biggest thing in rock. For fans of The Neighbourhood, CHVRCHES, and Paramore, PVRIS are the best thing since sliced bread.” That’s what MTV said about the Boston-based trio of vocalist Lynn Gunn, guitarist Alex Babinski and bassist Brian MacDonald and the band is certainly living up to the hype: over the past few months, they performed on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” were spotlighted on “Last Call with Carson Daly,” hit the road with Fall Out Boy and Awolnation for a North American arena tour and were featured on the cover of Alternative Press. That followed a year in which they hit No. 1 on Billboard’s “Emerging Artists” and “Trending 140” charts, played to packed-house crowds around the world and racked up over 12 million total YouTube views and 15 million total streams in the US alone (the latest being more than 14.7 million Spotify streams and 3.4 million views for their “You And I” video). The band is led by 21-year-old vocalist Lynn Gunn, who the Huffington Post described as “a force that cannot be denied.” $25-$27

Rigoletto

Sat., Oct. 21, 7:30 p.m. and Sun., Oct. 22, 2:30 p.m.

Opera, shmopera — Rigoletto is a masterpiece of a stage performance and one of Giuseppe Verdi’s most celebrated works. To make it a little less stuffy, it’s been updated by Jonathan Miller to be set in Little Italy during the 1950s. Titular character Rigoletto finds himself at odds with a powerful mafia boss and the rest is a tale of tragedy and vengeance — doesn’t sound so stuffy now, does it?

Show starts at 7:30 p.m on Saturday and 2:30 p.m. on Sunday; 1526 Broadway St., Detroit; 313-237-7464; michiganopera.org; Tickets start at $35. $35
