New Orleans gets its cameo in a cultural season full of premieres. Southern Rep opens its season with the regional premiere of Lisa D'Amour's Airline Highway, featuring a colorful set of characters at a cheap hotel on the local strip. The Marigny Opera Ballet also debuts a locally set original work with an original score, Giselle Deslondes. OperaCreole presents a long-overdue local premiere of La Flamenca, an opera written in 1899 by New Orleans-born Lucien Lambert.

  There's plenty of tradition to celebrate. Le Petit Theatre du Vieux Carre marked its centennial with the opening of Pippin, and the Contemporary Arts Center marks its 40th anniversary with the opening of Zoe | Juniper's Clear & Sweet and its performing arts season this week (see "Shape notes," page 5).

  Plenty of national headliners have dates in New Orleans this fall, starting with Beyonce at the Superdome on Saturday. Elivis Costello, Maceo Parker, Mary J. Blige and Bonnie Raitt also are on the concert schedule. Tool and Arcade Fire top the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience. Touring Broadway shows The Sound of Music and Jersey Boys are scheduled at the Saenger Theatre. Brazil's contemporary dance company Grupo Corpo comes to the Mahalia Jackson Theater for the Performing Arts. Comedian Sarah Silverman headlines Hell Yes Fest and Amy Schumer finishes out 2016 on New Year's Eve.
