Durham
The Phantom of the Opera

Durham Performing Arts CenterThe Phantom of the Opera is here, for 32 performances in 25 days, starting on America's day of giving thanks. As Broadway's longest-running musical, The Phantom of the Opera hits the Triangle as part of a U.S. tour that's been running since 1992. Based on the French novel Le Fantôme de l'Opéra by Gaston Leroux, the musical has garnered more than $5 billion worldwide and spawned a film adaptation, international productions in more than 20 countries and even a forthcoming sequel, Phantom: Love Never Dies. This love story about a disfigured composer who falls for a beautiful opera singer is a sight to see, not only for its lavish costumes and sets but also for its grand musical numbers that mix traditional opera arias with a classical score. The show runs through Dec. 20 with tickets ranging from $25 to $82. Visit www.dpacnc.com. —Belem Destefani



Raleigh
Felix the Drum Machine, NAPS

Slim's—If you're a Raleigh expatriate back for Thanksgiving and looking to reconnect with old friends and see if the old hometown has any new tunes, this is the place to be. Felix the Drum Machine might not be new for some of you—it's the Southeast Raleigh High School quartet of people who eventually moved on to Annuals, Future Islands and Lonnie Walker. Expect slightly dreamy, slightly angular textural pop. NAPS is so new, though, that they're still giving away an excellent five-song demo EP online (naps.bandcamp.com). The quartet includes Lonnie Walker's Brian Corum and Annuals' Zack Oden (who both play in Felix, too), but they're led by the tempered romanticism of Daniel Michael. A little like Why? on sedatives, Michael pines about girls and longings above songs that float on. Pay $3 at 10 p.m. See www.myspace.com/slimsdowntownraleigh. —Grayson Currin
