1 Momentum Ada will feature “This Filthy World” at 7:30 p.m. today in the Ataloa Theatre.
“This Filthy World” is John Waters’ rapid-fire, one-man spoken word ‘Vaudeville” act that celebrates the film career and joyously appalling taste of the man William Burroughs once called “The Pope of Trash.” Updated and expanded from the original film versions that enjoyed critical success at the Edinburgh, Toronto and Berlin Film Festivals, the live performance of “This Filthy World” focuses on Waters’ early negative artistic influences, his fascination with true crime, exploitation films, fashion lunacy, the extremes of the art world, Catholicism, sexual deviancy and a love of reading.  The event is recommended for mature audiences only.
Tickets are $15 and can be purchased by going online to ecok.edu/FineArts, email at boxoffice@ecok.edu or by calling (580) 559-5751. Season passes for the 2016-17 ECU Fine Arts Season will be accepted.

2 The popular Simply Three trio returns  at 7:30 p.m. today in the Bartlesville Community Center.

Members Glen McDaniel, Nick Villalobos and Zack Clark continue to garner praise for their ability to impress listeners with a multitude of genres that span from Puccini and Gershwin to artists such as Adele, Coldplay and Michael Jackson.
Tickets are on sale in the Bartlesville Community Center. Prices range from $40-$60 or visit the festival’s website: www.okmozart.com.

3 Live in HD from The Metropolitan Opera features Richard Strauss’s “Eugene Onegin” at 11:30 a.m. Saturday in the Goddard Center. The doors will open at 10:30 a.m. A light meal, included in the cost of admission, will be served prior to the performance.
While the opera is originally set in Vienna in the 1740s, the Met’s re-envisioned performance is set closer to the opera’s premiere in 1911. Genuine historical references are merged with fictitious inventions (like the “noble custom” of the presentation of the silver rose to a fiancée, which never actually existed) and anachronisms (like the Viennese Waltz, which did not yet exist at that time). It’s a mixture that creates a seductive mythical landscape, a ceremonious and impossibly beautiful Vienna-that-never-was.
The Goddard Center honors Metropolitan Opera season ticket holders. General admission is $20; Senior Citizens (55+) are $15; Goddard Center members are $15; students (K-college) are $10; and children 5 years old or younger are $5. Tickets are available in-person the day of the performance and may also be purchased in advance by calling the business office at (580) 226-0909.
