We don't remember Italy's green, white and red banner being one of those Six Flags Over Texas. But somehow The Dallas Opera shows Italian roots with Masquerade 2004: Carnevale di Venezia, where the Westin City Center, 650 N. Pearl St., will be transformed into Venice. With the $300 ticket price comes cuisine, cappuccino and commedia d'el arte from 6:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. Saturday. Call 214-443-1063. --Mary Monigold
