Who Do You Love?

It was all the rage in ancient times, but surely taking Jupiter to your bed seems simply ridiculous these days. But that, as Jean-Baptiste Poquelin Moli?re might say, is the point of his comedy "Amphitryon," beautifully staged in a recent production by Vladimir Mirzoyev. The show begins at 7 p.m. at the Vakhtangov Theater, 26 Stary Arbat. Metro Arbatskaya. Tel. 241-1651/79.

Love Those Oranges

If you haven't seen British director Peter Ustinov's eclectic take on Sergei Prokofiev's avant-garde opera, "The Love of the Three Oranges" (Lyubov k Tryom Apelsinam), Wednesday is your last chance this season. Among other things, Ustinov's production includes a naked overweight chef and an electric rat. March on down at 7 p.m. Wednesday to the Bolshoi Theater, 1 Teatralnaya Ploshchad. Metro Teatralnaya. Tel. 292-9986.
