WHAT IS TO BE DONE?




Homeward Bound


Head "Home" Tuesday for an evening with grandma, or, to be precise, an evening of folk music by the Smolenskiye Babushki, or Smolensk Grandmothers, a trio of elderly singers who perform occasionally in the capital to great acclaim. Storyteller Sergei Starostin and a group of fortune tellers will also be on hand. Dom is located at 24 Bolshoi Ovchinnikovsky Pereulok, Bldg. 4. Metro Novokuznetskaya. Tel. 953-7236. All concerts at Dom begin at 7 p.m.


Up the Beanstalk


If Moscow's hopelessly average altitude has got you down, spend an afternoon in the clouds at the "Inclination for Heights" exhibit at the Roerich Center. The collection of photographs, paintings, stamps, and other items is dedicated to mountains and mountain climbing and features concerts and video shows. The center is located at 3/5 Maly Znamensky Pereulok and is open from noon to 7 p.m. every day except Sunday and Monday. Metro Kropotkinskaya. Tel. 203-6419.


Out of This World


Go even higher, all the way to outer space, with "Is There Life on Mars?" avant-garde pop musician and actor Pyotr Mamonov's one-man, one-act show about people at odds with the world around them. The show is loosely based on Chekhov's comedy "The Proposal." "Yest Li Zhizn Na Marse?" plays at 7 p.m. at the Stanislavsky Drama Theater, located at 23 Tverskaya Ulitsa. Metro Tverskaya. Tel. 299-7221.
