10 Things You Have to Do This Weekend

Page 10 of 10

Sat 2/6 - Sun 2/7
The Abduction from the Seraglio 

The mashup, most closely associated with DJs and mixtapes, typically consists of fusing two seemingly incongruous pieces of music and creating a wholly new piece, with the added benefit of calling into focus certain key elements in the originals. This weekend, experience an unexpected level of mashup as Opera Piccola of San Antonio blends the Star Trek universe with one of Mozart’s most far-out operas: Abduction from the Seraglio. The degree of rewarding intertextuality between the two worlds remains to be seen, but the mere concept is pure genius. $15-$35, 8pm Sat, 2:30pm Sun, Charline McCombs Empire Theatre, 226 N. St. Mary’s St., (210) 226-3333, operapiccolasa.com. — JC
