OUR TOP PICKS

FOR NOVEMBER EVENTS

Song and Dance

With the arts season in full swing, you can catch big productions from the city’s biggest art producers: The New Orleans Opera Association and the New Orleans Ballet Association. NOOA presents the Strauss operetta Die Fledermaus (Nov. 13 & 15). NOBA features the Dance Theatre of Harlem (Nov. 21). Information, NewOrleansOpera.org, MahaliaJacksonTheater.com


Is This Faux Real?

A festival dedicated to experimental theater, the literary scene, food and cocktail culture? Seems like a lot, but you have nearly a month to take in the sprawling Faux Real New Orleans (Nov. 4-22), the inaugural festival that grew out of New Orleans Fringe. Like Fringe, Faux Real – directed by Ben Mintz, founder of the website NOLA Defender – offers a lot of odd, but in many cases excellent, theater offerings, mostly in alternative venues in the Marigny and Bywater. Expanding to include the culinary arts, this iteration also features a Central City pubcrawl, craft cocktail-fueled “punk rock karaoke” and food pop-ups from local chefs. The literary scene will also be represented, and theater offerings under the Faux Real umbrella include NOLA Project’s immersive “Clown Bar” and programing at several “mini-festivals” happening at small venues. This is the Russian doll of arts festivals.

Gumbo for All

The Tremé Creole Gumbo Festival (Nov. 14-15) presents not only a smorgasbord of the marquee dish and brass bands, there’s also the annual vegan gumbo cook-off. The cook-off has been happening for three years now; if this carnivorous, tradition-based city hasn’t cancelled it yet, you know it must be pretty good.
