Weekend watch: ‘The Face on the Barroom Floor’

Tonight – Sunday


What’s a good way of demystifying the arts, making them more accessible? Give the guests a drink? How about bringing the arts to where they drink? The Fargo-Moorhead Opera steps away from the big stage and steps behind the bar at the Hotel Donaldson’s HoDo Lounge, 101 Broadway N., Fargo, tonight through Saturday.

Each night at 7:30 the staff welcomes a new bartender, Peter Halverson, who sings opposite Mike Skyles and Darci Bultema in this Wild West chamber opera, “The Face on the Barroom Floor.” The one-act (about 40 minutes) performance is open to all ages.

Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at the door, with each guest getting a free drink. Only a few spots left for Friday’s show. (701) 239-4558
