May 9-18: The Magic Flute
The Magic Flute, Mozart’s classic tale of adventure, romance and redemption is being told on stage at The Kennedy Center, where the Washington National Opera is performing the family-friendly production in English through May 18. When Prince Tamino falls in love with a damsel in distress, whose mother happens to be the Queen of the Night, he embarks on a journey to save her. Armed with a magic flute and a not-so-helpful sidekick, the young royal challenges himself to a mystical quest fraught with danger and temptation.

May 9-30: Birds, Beasts and Besides
Quirky, animal-themed sculpture and colored pencil drawings keep the mood light in Birds, Beasts and Besides, a new exhibit featuring work by local artists Ken Beerbohm and Deborah Maklowski. The exhibit will be on view at The Artists’ Gallery in Columbia through May 30. You can attend an opening reception tonight from 6 to 8 or stop by and chat with the artists tomorrow from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Music: “The Magic Flute (Overture)” by Mozart
