The Souls Are Out

Lenkom director Mark Zakharov brings Nikolai Gogol's dead and buried souls back to life in "Mystification," Lenkom's flamboyant dramatization of Gogol's comic masterpiece, "Dead Souls." The stage adaptation is by Nina Sadur, a novelist full of Gogol's sense of horror and love of the grotesque. "Mystification" plays at 7 p.m. at the Lenkom Theater, 6 Malaya Dmitrovka, Tel. 299-9668/0708. Metro: Pushkinskaya.

Avant-Garde Faces

It may not be to everyone's taste, but Dom Nashchokina's current exhibit, "The Second Avant-Garde. Portraits," offers a who's who of contemporary avant-garde art. A collage of photographs of leading artists decorates the gallery's far wall. The exhibit runs through June at the Dom Nashchokina Gallery, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., 12 Vorotnikovsky Pereulok, Tel. 299-1178. Metro: Mayakovskaya.

Film Styles Onegin

Apart from the duel on a misty morning, "Yevgeny Onegin" doesn't give much of a plot to hang a lavish costume drama on, but Martha and Ralph Fiennes do a stylish job nevertheless in "Onegin," their adaptation of Pushkin's novel-in-verse. Ralph is terrific as the faintly demonic, world-weary aristocrat, while Liv Tyler does an effective, hysterical Tatyana. The film plays at 7 p.m. at the American House of Cinema, Radisson Slavjanskaya Hotel, 2 Berezhkovskaya Naberezhnaya, Tel. 941-8747. Metro: Kievskaya.
