It might seem like January is the month to stay home trying to stay warm, but there are plenty of ways to entertain yourself during these short days. These three music events will help you to get out of the house and enjoy all that Boise has to offer.


A Local Sound

LIVE presented by Idaho Dance Theatre with Hollow Wood


Join the Idaho Dance Theatre and Hollow Wood for LIVE, a performance featuring choreographed dances set to live music. Local band, Hollow Wood, will perform songs from its EP albums and their upcoming full album while dancers perform. Six choreographers from Idaho Dance Theatre have created dances to 11 of the band's songs, promising a unique experience.


Multiple performances mean you can find a time and day that works great for you. The show will be at the Boise State's Morrison Center on Friday, January 29, and Saturday, January 30, at 8pm, and on Sunday, January 31, at 2pm. Tickets range from $10 to $30 and can be purchased here. Check out Idaho Dance Theatre's website or the event's Facebook page for more information.


A Glimpse into China


Get a taste of another culture at Shen Yun, a performance that captures 5,000 years of China's past in dance and music. This elaborate performance features beautiful costumes, backdrops, and aerobatic dancing. Shen Yun will be at the Morrison Center on Tuesday, January 19, and Wednesday, January 20, at 8:30pm. You can purchase tickets here.


The Sound of Italy


If music and singing are more of interest to you than dancing, Opera Idaho's performance of "La Traviata" may be just the ticket. Soprano Cecilia Violetta López returns to Opera Idaho after her turn as Gilda in last year's performance of "Rigoletto." She plays the part of Violetta Valeri, a prostitute who has a chance at love, but must deal with the disapproval of her lover's father. This is López's second time performing Violetta, she played the part in New York City before. The performance will be in Italian, and can be seen at the Egyptian Theatre. Performances are Friday, January 29, at 7:30pm, and Sunday, January 31, at 2:30pm. Purchase tickets here.
