(Sept. 8) Face of America: Spirit of South Florida
Wolf Trap celebrates our national parks Saturday night with Face of America: Spirit of South Florida. The multimedia experience weaves together live music and live dance with recorded music and high-definition video of dance performed on location in Florida’s finest open spaces. Cuban-American timba band Tiempo Libre and acclaimed multi-instrumentalist Andrew Bird provide some of the sounds.

(Sept. 8-15) Just another Photo-Op
If you want to have a good laugh at one of our national traditions, there’s Photo-Op this weekend and next at Artisphere in Arlington. The 60-minute opera about the absurdity of modern presidential politics finds two singers delivering stump speeches, walking tight ropes, and debating in the midst of a harmonious score.

(Sept. 8-30) Target hits a quarter-century
Alexandria’s Target Gallery turns 25 this year. It’s celebrating with 25, opening Saturday. The show features local artists tackling world events from the past quarter-century. They take on things like climate change, globalization, and changing perceptions of race and gender in a variety of media through the end of the month.

Music: “Nyatiti” by Andrew Bird
