THE TEN TENORS
7:30 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $10-$40.

International phenomenon the Ten Tenors take a populist approach to opera. (One of the group's live standbys is a song called “Opera Without the Boring Bits.”) Formed in Australia in 1995, the 10-man act rose to prominence with a performance at the 2002 Eurovision (think “American Idol” for the whole of Europe). Since then, the tenors have wowed audiences across the world with operatic renditions of music by Queen, the Bee Gees and ABBA; traditional Australian tunes and classical material. The Ten Tenors will perform four shows: 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and 1 p.m. Thursday.
