For the next two weekends, performing arts streamer Cennarium will honor Women’s History Month with $1 show specials.

This week, from 12 am ET Wednesday night/Thursday morning through 11:59 pm Sunday, you can stream composer Elisabeth Naske’s Red Zora (Die Rote Zora). In this German opera written for young audiences,a courageous girl… is the leader of a gang of orphans in 1930s Croatia who are fighting against injustice and unscrupulousness.”

Then, during the same time period the following week, March 29 to April 1, Cennarium will offer the Martha Graham Dance Company in a program that includes “Appalachian Spring” (1944) set to Aaron Copland’s Pulitzer Prize-winning score, as well as “Lamentation Variations,” choreographed by Sonya Tayeh (Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance), Kyle Abraham and Larry Keigwin.

Cennarium actually began its $1 specials this past weekend with a flamenco-flavored production of Bizet’s Carmen, from Spain and starring dancer Vanesa Vento. In case you missed it, here it is for free, in its entirety:
