Hear Neal Conan and Watch Tango Dancers This Weekend

Unfortunately, NPR's Neal Conan will not actually be tango dancing in tonight's performance of Guillermina Quiroga's Tango, Historia Breves at the Buckman Performing & Fine Arts Center at 8 p.m.

But you can hear Conan's soothing voice as the narrator of Universe of Dreams at the Germantown Performing Arts Center tonight at 8 p.m. The multi-media concert explores the mysteries of the universe through poetry and prose ... whatever that means.

Tomorrow night, impress your friends by heading to the opera. Lucky for you, Opera Memphis' current show is far from traditional. Scott Joplin's ragtime opera Treemonisha centers on the life of an African-American girl living in Texarkana, Arkansas in the late 1800s. The show runs Saturday and Sunday night at the Orpheum.

Sick of all this anti-gay marriage talk? Learn how to lobby in favor of gay and lesbian rights at the GLBT Lobbying 101 workshop at the University of Memphis Law School on Saturday at 2 p.m. The workshop is hosted by the Tennessee Equality Project.

Pick up early Valentine's gifts at the Memphis Gift and Jewelry Show at the Memphis Cook Convention center. The annual trade show features more than 200 exhibitors selling jewelry, apparel, perfumes, artwork, and more. The expo runs Saturday through Monday.
