Operatic Maneuvers

It's fitting that for Women's History Month, Opera Southwest is staging Georges Bizet's Carmen. The opera, set in 1830s Spain, tells the story of a strong-willed Romani woman, the eponymous Carmen, who falls in love with the soldier Don José. While bringing them together, their passion also tears them tragically apart. See Carmen at the KiMo Theatre (423 Central NW). Shows on Saturday, March 20; Tuesday, March 23; and Friday, March 26 are at 7:30 p.m. The performance on Sunday, March 28, is at 2 p.m. Tickets range from $20 to $65, with discounts available for students, seniors and groups. Get them through Opera Southwest (243-0591), or the KiMo Box Office (768-3544).

Handmade Brigade

The gang over at The Kosmos (1715 Fifth Street NW) is creating a space for crafty women (not scheming-crafty, but there may be some of those, too). Nouveau-Hemian (salon des femmes) is a crafting collective that meets the third Thursday of every month from 6 to 9 p.m., beginning March 18. Bring your quilting, sewing, crocheting, embroidery, decoupage—whatever the tinder to your creative fire might be. Since the collective is so new, it's looking for members to contribute to and steer its mission. Maybe I'll bring my paper hat materials (i.e., copies of old Alibis) and see you there. Go to for more.


The love for ladies continues with the ultimate in up-with-women, down-with-violence art: Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues. Presented by Las Meganenas and co-sponsored by the UNM Women's Resource Center, the bilingual production is a benefit for Enlace Comunitario, an organization that seeks to "eliminate domestic violence and advance immigrants' rights." The South Broadway Cultural Center (1025 Broadway SE) hosts performances on Friday, March 19, and Saturday, March 20, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15 and are available at the SBCC (848-1320) or Enlace Comunitario (246-8972).
