  • The Arkansas Symphony Orchestra presents "Wicked Divas" this weekend.

8 p.m. Robinson Center Music Hall. $10-$65.

The Arkansas Symphony Orchestra closes out its 2011-2012 season with this program of "diva showstoppers," featuring vocalists Eden Espinosa and Emily Rozek.

Espinosa has played the role of Elphaba for the Broadway production of the hit musical "Wicked" and starred in the film of the final performance of "Rent." She's also done voiceover work on the inestimable Adult Swim program "Robot Chicken." Nice! Rozek played the role of Glinda in the Los Angeles production of "Wicked," and has performed on touring productions of "Sunset Boulevard" and "South Pacific."

The show will be led by Associate Conductor Geoffrey Robson, and will feature music from such works as Bizet's "Carmen," "My Fair Lady," "Phantom of the Opera," "Spamalot," "The Wizard of Oz" and, naturally, "Wicked."

"Wicked Divas" will be performed again at 3 p.m. Sunday.
