See Tiny Samurai

A new exhibit of Japanese dolls opens Wednesday at the Oriental Art Museum as part of the Japanese Autumn Festival '99. The 15 exquisite dolls are not your average playthings - think less Barbie, more miniature geisha - and are only on display through Oct. 23. The museum is at 12a Nikitsky Bulvar. Open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tel. 291-9614. Metro: Arbatskaya.

Last Tango in Moscow

Warm up on a chilly autumn night with "Tango... una Rosa per Jorge Donn," a steamy contemporary dance show dedicated to the memory of Donn, a powerful dancer and choreographer. Arranged by Denys Ganio, artistic director of the Balletto di Milano, the evening features costumes by Versace and music by Schiavoni and Mahler. The performance begins at 7 p.m. at the Bolshoi Theater, 1 Teatralnaya Ploshchad. Tel. 292-9986. Metro: Teatralnaya.

Satan? Here??

See Wednesday's staging of "The Master and Margarita," an adaptation of Mikhail Bulgakov's legendary fantasy novel about a visit to Moscow paid by none other than the Devil himself. The production, first staged by Yury Lyubimov over 20 years ago, is a classic that still packs a punch today. The play starts at 7 p.m. at the Taganka Theater, Taganskaya Ploshchad. Tel. 915-1015/1217. Metro: Taganskaya.
