You don't need to spend 80 days circumnavigating the world in a hot air balloon to sample music from all corners of the globe, because today, the Gatsby Theatre Company's Around the World in 80 Minutes allows you to enjoy snippets of celebrated operas and musical plays. To see the likes of Aida, Jean Valjean and Carmen share the stage, arrive at 6 at the Broadmoor Community Church (315 Lake Ave., tiny.cc/sevendaysgatsby). Refreshments are provided and the show is free, but donations are requested to fund future GTC projects. — Hannah Brenneman
