Portuguese diva Mariza performs this weekend at the Wortham Center. Mariza has sold millions of records worldwide.
The international singer performs a native musical style of fado, but uses a wide variety of musical styles, including gospel, soul and jazz. Her father strongly encouraged her to adopt fado; he felt that participating in the traditional music would grant her greater acceptance in the Portuguese community. Fado is a music genre that can be traced to the 1820s in Lisbon, Portugal, but probably has much earlier origins. The word "fado" possibly comes from the Latin word fatum ("fate", "death" or "utterance").

Houston's Grand Opera this weekend continues its staging of Don Giovanni an opera in two acts with music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Italian libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte. Don Giovanni is based on the legends of Don Juan, a fictional libertine and seducer. It was premiered by the Prague Italian opera at the National Theater (of Bohemia), now called the Estates Theatre, back in 1787. Da Ponte's libretto was billed as a dramma giocoso, a common designation of its time that denotes a mixing of serious and comic action. Mozart entered the work into his catalogue as an opera buffa. Although sometimes classified as comic, it blends comedy, melodrama and supernatural elements. Houston's Grand Opera bills it as, "Seduction, passion, and guilt lead to a fateful end."
