Getting Up Guide: 'The Red Shoes' and Nora Chipaumire

By Alex Baldinger

Lady Gaga at the Verizon Center is tonight's main event, but if you didn't manage to grab tickets before it sold out, here are some other Thursday evening options:

The Red Shoes
This newly restored 1948 classic film about an ambitious ballerina screams "Black Swan," and that's precisely why it's in theaters again more than 60 years after its release. At the AFI Silver Theatre at 6:45 p.m.

Nora Chipaumire: "lions will roar"
The Zimbabwe-born choreographer's story of human identity features music performed by Thomas Mapfumo and The Blacks Unlimited (whose music has been banned by the Zimbabwean government) with dance by Souleymane Badolo. At the Clarice Smith Center at 8 p.m.

The Low Anthem
Rockers experiment with string-band instruments and echoes of the songs of pre-1940 rural America. At Sixth and I Historic Synagogue at 8 p.m.
