Mondavi Center, Jackson Hall

They are pretty much it. I mean, they’ve won a Grammy, been on Gramophone’s 100 Greatest Recordings, toured globally and have appeared at major festivals including Festival of the Arts BOCA. As far as I know, Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich will be performed and that’s reason enough to go.

The Butterfly Lovers

Feb. 19 and Feb. 20, 8 p.m., $20 students

Mondavi Center, Jackson Hall

If you haven’t taken your girlfriend out for V-day and you weren’t able to go home to celebrate Chinese New Year, it’s okay because the Beijing Dance Academy Youth Dance Company will be performing The Butterfly Lovers, a Chinese interpretation of Romeo and Juliet. I’m not Chinese, but my co-worker (who is) told me that this performance is pretty legit. Hey, if they’re coming to the west coast from China, I’m sure they’re worth seeing.

Wonderboy and 29 Effeminate Gestures

Feb. 24 to 26, 8 p.m., $17.50

Mondavi Center, Vanderhoef Studio Theatre

Cross-working puppets and dancing, the UC Davis LGBT center will be co-presenting this performance not one but three times. I guess at this point we are all wondering what Wonderboy will be about.
