July 26-27: Cavalleria Rusticana and I Pagliacci

The newly-formed local company Maryland Lyric Opera wraps up its debut season this weekend with dual productions of Cavalleria Rusticana and I Pagliacci. In the first, a woman accuses her sweetheart of cheating and soon learns that unlike lovers, words can’t be taken back. In I Pagliacci, the audience is reminded that clowns are people too, and drama isn't exclusive to the stage. You can see the pair at Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center this Saturday at 7 p.m. or on Sunday at 2 p.m.

July 22-27: Once Upon a Mattress

Encore Stage & Studio presents Once Upon a Mattress, a musical take on the classic tale of The Princess and the Pea. It’s time for the Prince to find a bride, and his mom thinks she knows how to tell a noble from a nobody. But the Queen’s standards might be even higher than a towering stack of mattresses. You can see the show this Thursday through Sunday at Thomas Jefferson Community Theatre in Arlington.
