    A'lante Flamenco: Procession

    A’lante Flamenco gives you a chance to connect with your fellow humans, singing, chanting, and marching along with the dancers and musicians as they take you on a sensory experience that goes beyond flamenco, evoking Semana Santa in Sevilla, the Arabic culture of Granada, and the universal appeal of Mardi Gras in New Orleans. (Or, yes, you can also just sit back and take in the spectacle.) Bonus: Guest artists Julie Slim Nassif and Oliver Steck.
    Through Feb. 23. Fri.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 4pm. $22.

    Arden of Faversham

    Hidden Room Theatre presents the lamentable and true tale of Master Arden, his wicked wife, her insatiable lover, and the bumbling ruffians the illicit pair hire to kill him. No one's sure if Shakespeare (or Kyd? or Marlowe?) had a hand in writing the script back in the day, but we know that the show is here directed by Beth Burns and embodied by a fine and vigorous cast.
    Through March 1. Thu.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 5pm. $18-37.

    Classical Music

    One Ounce Opera: Fresh Squeezed Ounce of Opera

    The goldenthroated movers and shakers of One Ounce Opera present the fifth year of this annual series, showcasing four new micro-operas in one night – and, for the first time, all four works performed on the showcase include a woman as either the composer or librettist. All of this year's works share a common theme – death – but the program is far from morbid. "Oh, there's ample humor in each piece," says OOO's Julie Fiore, "and it's enough to keep you rolling for a good while." Find out what happens with a company of powerful voices in the darkness and the light, in the premieres of The Séance, The Stranger, Non Motus, and Misfortune.
    Through Feb. 16. Fri.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 2pm. $20.
