Killers, Opera, and 'Real/Fake'

WED - MUSIC

Just over a year since their debut, Las Vegas' new-wave darlings the Killers are still ubiquitous—as well as being the rare band indie and mainstream rockers can agree on.

SAT - OPERA

The follow-up to Jake Heggie's freshman operatic effort (the controversial Dead Man Walking) is his critically acclaimed adaptation of The End of the Affair, Graham Greene's 1951 novel of passion, faith, sacrifice, and miracles during the Blitz. Sat., Oct. 15–Sat., Oct. 29. $48–$127. McCaw Hall, Seattle Center, 206-389-7676, www.seattleopera.org. GAVIN BORCHERT

SAT - FESTIVAL

Richard Hugo House has some heavy thinkers lined up for its annual daylong inquiry into an idea—in this case, into the twin notions of "Real/Fake." Among the participants: poet Christa Bell, ACT Artistic Director Kurt Beattie (pictured), critic Ann Powers, and our own Michaelangelo Matos. Sat., Oct. 15. $50. Hugo House, 1634 11th Ave., 206-322-7030, www.hugohouse.org. LYNN JACOBSON
