The Week Ahead: WFHS alumni show, Jessica Matson-Fluto, ‘Face on the Barroom Floor’

Don’t get too lulled in by these unseasonably warm temperatures, ARTSpulsers. After a couple days of feeling like March, it’s definitely going to feel like January again this weekend.

But don’t despair. An upcoming arts event is sure to keep that warm, glowing feeling in your soul.

Through the weekend

FM Opera presents the chamber opera The Face on the Ballroom Floor Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night at the HoDo Lounge (that’s them rehearsing in the photo above). It’s pretty short and sung in English, making it an excellent opportunity to dip your toes into opera if you never have before. Tickets are going fast for all three shows. 7 p.m., 21+, $25.
