WHAT IS TO BE DONE?




Francophile Moscow


"Le Cid," a medieval Spanish epic song turned French play is a delight for bilingual theater-goers, especially those with a fondness for Spanish history. "Le Cid" plays at the National Youth Theater at 7 p.m. Tuesday, 2/7 Teatralnaya Ploschad. Metro Teatralnaya, Ploshchad Revolyutsii. Tel. 292-0069.


Melancholy Mayakovsky


"The love boat has crashed against the everyday. You and I, we are quits, and there is no point in listing mutual pain, sorrows and injuries." Great Russian poet Vladimir Mayakovsky's letters and photographs are currently on display at the Mayakovsky Museum, which is also the poet's former residence - where he lived and, disappointed by love and Soviet reality, committed suicide. The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is located at 3 Lubyansky Proezd. Metro Lubyanka. Tel. 928-2569.


Electrifying Jazz


The electric sounds of Felix Lakhuti strumming his jazz violin at club Birdland might soothe your end-of-the-millennium angst, conjuring up memories of Chicago speakeasies and bootleg alcohol - until you remember that the electric bass did not exist during Prohibition, and most likely neither did you. Birdland is located at 16 Ulitsa Shchipok. Metro Serpukhovskaya. Tel. 236-3363. The concert starts at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday.
