Sex, power, seduction, oh my! It's better than the Wizard of Oz - it's Les Liaisons Dangereuses. This decadent morality tale explores the furtive schemes of Marquise de Meurtuil and the Vicomte de Vamont, who plot a vicious sport against innocent victims. The Arizona Repertory Theater will discuss some of the issues driving the play prior to the show at 1:30 p.m. in Director Studio 116 in the fine arts complex. Call the fine arts box office at 621-1162 to buy tickets.

When you think of gypsies, long, flowing skirts, turban-wrapped heads and bare feet may come to mind, but what auditory illusions do you think of? Rather than imagining them, why not discover the real thing? You've got the perfect chance to do that tonight at Centennial Hall when Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg and Sergio and Odair Assad present "Gypsy Songs." Salerno-Sonnenberg's violin and Assads' guitar have been called "sultry provocateur with deliriously Romantic lyricism" by Stereo Review. The performance starts at 7:30 p.m. in Centennial Hall. Tickets cost between $26 and $38 and can be purchased by calling 621-3341.
Looking to check out some music today, but want to hit the bars tonight so you can't make it to Centennial?
