Thursday: Twelfth Night
$12 for students
Theatrical favorite Actors from the London Stage return to Notre Dame with a production of Shakespeare’s beloved comedy, “Twelfth Night.” The play, which combines disguise, mistaken identity and romance, is a light-hearted but poignant story sure to keep you in stitches. Actors from the London Stage will also perform “Twelfth Night” on Friday, Jan. 27.
Friday: Three Men in Kilts
Popular South Bend haunt Fiddler’s Hearth brings to its stage Three Men in Kilts, a Chicago-based Irish band that will play a set of traditional Irish pub songs. Join in as the crowd sings along over some bread pudding and a pint — or, for those under 21, a soda. Even at this late hour, Fiddler’s is both a bar and restaurant, fun for people of all ages to enjoy. But get there early — the place is small and fills up fast.
Indie “party rock” artist Wallpaper will visit Legends on Saturday. Along with opener Twenty One Pilots, Wallpaper’s hits are guaranteed to get the crowd dancing all night long. Stick around after the show for a bubble party, which — you guessed it — means bubbles will fill Legends as you dance.
Sunday: The Enchanted Island
Browning Cinema, DPAC
While a trip to New York City’s Metropolitan Opera might be difficult right now, the walk to DPAC is not. This Sunday, the Met will broadcast its new original opera “The Enchanted Island” live in the Browning Cinema. The Baroque opera features music from a host of famous composers set to a new libretto that combines the stories of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”and “The Tempest.” The new production is sure to be fantastical.
