The photo at left isn't a Dr. Seuss hostage negotiation — it's evolution. More specifically, it's a scene from Darwin, Michael Henry and Dwight Frizzell's new opera, which the Owen/Cox Dance Group stages this weekend with NewEar Contemporary Chamber Ensemble in a world premiere that caps the latter's 20th season. In this biographical look at Origin of Species author Charles Darwin, expect singing, dancing and equator crossing, set to a score centered on violin, bass, flute, clarinet, bassoon, horn and piano. It's at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday at Union Station's City Stage Theatre (30 West Pershing Road, 816-460-2020). For tickets, see tickets.cto.umkc.edu.
