The Emerging Cinemas network presents world-class performing arts, recorded on-scene at internationally recognized theaters and splashes them across the big screen before popcorn-chomping American audiences. Coppélia, choreographed by Patrice Bart, is a comic tale that follows the en pointe follies of a lovesick villager whose fiancée must compete with a life-like dancing automaton to win his affections. Composed by Mozart, The Magic Flute, a two-act opera with both dialogue and singing, tells the story of young prince Tamino and his love interest, Pamina, as they struggle through a series of fantastical trials and stress-induced cupcake binges to realize their union.
The Barksdale Theatre puts on professional productions with the intimate and historic Hanover Tavern. Dan Goggin’s Nunsense details the fundraising efforts of the little sisters of Hoboken, who need cash to bury fallen sisters poisoned by the convent cook. This screwball comedy has been outfitted with new jokes, new lyrics, a brand-new song, and a snazzy new bouffant hairdo for the Hanover Tavern stage. Check the schedule for show times. As musical theater is a dish best served alongside edible dishes, reservations for brunch and dinner in the Tavern’s old dining rooms are available separately and offered prior to performances.

The skater- and volunteer-operated league sprouted in early 2006 as Richmond's first all-women's flat-track roller-derby association. At the start, the league featured just two teams—Poe's Punishers and the Uncivil Warriors—but has since expanded to include new members, including the Carytown Cadets, the Hollywood Undertakers, and the Jackson Wardens. All teams take falls and crack skulls as part of the Eastern region of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association. But off the track, players put away their growling game faces when participating in community-outreach programs.
Led by the graceful, ear-captivating vocals of Lumiri Tubo, "A Tribute to Nat King Cole" pays homage to the music legend with an evening of inspired renditions. Tubo's stunning serenades drape audiences in a melody-woven blanket of nostalgia as she channels Cole's enchanting aura, belting out classics such as "Unforgettable," "Mona Lisa," and "Ramblin' Rose." As the performance delves deeper into Cole's colorful catalog, Tubo combines her own dynamic style, subtle phrasing, and ability to ignore loudly sobbing trombone players to infuse each memorable hit with a dose of modern flair. Although not included with today's deal, a full menu of food and drink offers to fuel spirited toe tapping and armrest drumming throughout the show.
