Dallas Opera closes season with Mozart's 'Magic Flute'
Of Mozart's operas, perhaps none is as widely performed as
"The Magic Flute," one of the seminal operas written in
German. One of the most fantastical works in the canon, it is
almost as famous for the inclusion of many references to
Free Masons as for its lovely score and complicated plot,
which involves a singing birdcatcher festooned in feathers, a
missing princess under a spell and of course the mystical
pipe of the title. The costumes were designed by Zandra
Rhodes, who helped usher in the punk fashion aesthetic in
the 1970s and designed costumes for Freddie Mercury. This
production closes out the Dallas Opera's 2005-06 season.

Carlos Acosta leaps into Bass Hall for
Texas Ballet Theater performance
Many ballet dancers want to be compared to
Baryshnikov, but Carlos Acosta — perhaps the premier
dancer of his generation — has actually been called
just that. The Cuban born star made his American
debut in 1993 at the Flouston Ballet under the direc-
tion of then-artistic director Ben Stevenson. Fie
returns to Stevenson's flock for a series of perform-
ances this week with the Texas Ballet Theater called
"Stars and Premieres." Acosta will perform alongside
Zhang Jian, a ballerina with the National Ballet of
China in a concert that includes two world premieres,
one set to the music of Tina Turner.
Bass Performance Hall, 325 Commerce St., Fort
Worth. Feb. 17-19. Friday-Saturday at 8 p.m.,
Sunday at 2 p.m. $18-$95. 877-212-4280.
Iconic lesbian singer Cris Williamson to perform
Cris Williamson is an iconic figure in queer music.
More than 30 years ago, her album
"The Changer and the Changed"
catapulted her into the lesbian
consciousness, becoming one of
the most success independent
releases ever. (Williamson has
just re-released the album in a
limited collector's edition.) The
legendary folk singer and song-
writer — no less than Bonnie Raitt
has called Williamson one of
her heroes — will sing some
of the timeless tracks off
the album (and no doubt
others) with a performance
in Fort Worth on Feb. 24.
Teresa Trull and Barbara
Fligbie will also perform.

Q Cinema presents debut effort from Peter Paige
As the beloved Emmett on "Queer as Folk," Peter
Paige was one of only three openly gay actors in the
principal cast. Contrary to conventional wisdom, that
openness hasn't appeared to hurt his career at all:
Paige recently made his debut as a film director and
screenwriter with "Say Uricie." Paige stars as a gay
artist who is targeted by a suspicious neighbor
(Kathy Najimy) as a pedophile. The film satirically
investigates how a vicious rumor, coupled with
homophobia, can spin out of control. Q Cinema
presents the area premiere with a
screening on Wednesday.
