Underground Legend

If you've never seen the legendary pioneers of the Soviet-era underground music scene, Akvarium, then you have truly missed something. Of course, the band has undergone a great many changes since the Brezhnev days, but the presence of frontman Boris Grebenshchikov alone is probably worth the price of a ticket. The St. Petersburg legends play 11 p.m. Thursday at Sixteen Tons, located at 6 Presnensky Val. Metro Ulitsa 1905 Goda. Tel. 253-5300.

Tough Day at Home

Go even further back in time with "Medea," Yury Lyubimov's staging of Euripides' tragedy. The play features an incredible performance by Lyubov Selyutina in the lead role of the mother who kills her own children to punish her cheating husband. Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Taganka Theater, located on Taganskaya Ploshchad, across from metro Taganskaya (ring line station). Tel. 915-1015.

The Barber Returns

Or, if you somehow managed to miss the very frequent showings last year of Nikita Mikhalkov's opus "The Barber of Siberia," now's your chance to finally screen the movie that everyone was talking about. Stars Oleg Menshikov. "The Barber of Siberia" (Sibirsky Tsiryulnik) plays at 5 p.m. at the Zaryadye Theater, located at 1 Moskvoretskaya Naberezhnaya. Metro Kitai-Gorod. Tel. 298-5691.
