    Arizona Theatre Company presents: Romeo and Juliet

    Perhaps Shakespeare’s most beloved play, and certainly the most well known love story of all time, “”Romeo and Juliet”” comes to Tucson for five days only. The Arizona Theatre Company welcomes the team of the Guthrie Theater and The Acting Company with their rendition of Shakespeare’s masterpiece. The tragic tale of unconditional young love and the societal boundaries that tear it apart are adapted afresh in this moving production.

    Gwar

    Gwar might be the only metal band with their own mythology. The extra-terrestrial, raunchy rock and roll of Gwar is notorious, if nothing else. This band from Virginia has adopted the personas of a gang of violent aliens banished to Earth thousands of years ago, only recently thawing and reviving to wreak havoc. Gwar, famous for insane stage shows with elaborate costumes and taboo performances, is not for the prude or the weak of heart.

    Arizona Opera Presents: Carmen

    Over a century old, the tale of Carmen comes this Sunday to the Tucson Music Hall. “”Carmen”” follows the beautiful gypsy that gives the opera its name. In the town of Seville, Spain, Carmen seduces the Corporal Don José with her unbridled sensuality. The opera is rich with comedy, tragedy and a suspenseful drama, set to a buoyant and exotic Spanish score.
