What to Do Today: Sept. 4

Take a journey to the Emerald Isle with a performance of the Celtic Tenors (three operatic Irishmen) with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra at 8pm today at Dallas' Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center. You'll hear folk, pop and classical music. Additional performances are at 8pm Saturday and 2:30pm Sunday. Tickets start at $22.

See the premiere of the fun and lighthearted musical comedy The Mikado at 7:30pm today at Hurst's Artisan Center Theater. The show, written by Gilbert and Sullivan more than 100 years ago, is a tangled love story with sweet melodies that are appropriate for the whole family. Tickets start at $7.

Take a field trip up 380 and check out the Native Texas Butterflies exhibit from 9am-5pm today at McKinney's Heard Natural Science Museum and Wildlife Sanctuary. You'll see lots of winged beauties, like zebra longwings, red admirals, monarchs and more. The exhibit is only open through Sept. 30 - don't miss it! $8 adults; $5 seniors and children ages 3-12; children younger than 3 free.
