Ballet by Danish Design

The Bolshoi is celebrating its 224th anniversary with a Wednesday performance of one of the de rigueur weepy classics. "Sylphid," a revival of the romantic ballet in two acts with choreography by August Bournonville, tells the story of a young Scot who falls in love with a beautiful sylph on the eve of his wedding. The curtain goes up at 7 p.m. 1 Teatralnaya Ploshchad. Metro Teatralnaya. Tel. 292-9986.

The City That Never Leaks

Moscow architect Alexander Brodsky has a black prognosis for the common metropolis: a slow and certain death. His "Coma" exhibit at the Marat Guelman Gallery features a 5.3-by-1.5 meter model of a city - not necessarily Moscow, the artist insists - fed on motor oil through intravenous tubes. Brodsky's compelling consideration of urban decay is on view through April 15. The gallery is located at 7/7 Ulitsa Polyanka and is open Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 6 p.m. Metro Polyanka. Tel. 238-8492.
