WHAT IS TO BE DONE?




Royal Favorites


If you have always wished to relive the heady days of early St. Petersburg, the Musica Petropolitana Ensemble has an evening for you. This collective from the northern capital is performing works by Ivan Khandoshkin, Antonio Vivaldi, Giovanni Paisiello, Heinrich Biber and other composers popular in 18th-century St. Petersburg. Brush up your French before heading at 7 p.m. Thursday to the Russian Army House, 2 Suvorov Square. Metro Novoslobodskaya. Tel. 281-5550.


Good, Vocal Fellas


It may not be Broadway, but this year's theater season has enjoyed a number of musical successes, namely "Metro" and "Tomorrowland." If you liked those two, you may be interested in "All Guns Blazing," a musical comedy about the Odessa mafia's antics in London, based on John Gay's perennial favorite "The Beggar's Opera." The musical entertainment starts at 7 p.m. Thursday in the Ruben Simonov Theater, 10/12 Kaloshin Pereulok. Metro Arbatskaya. Tel. 248-2472.


Even Better Vibrations


For most, the vibraphone is the percussion instrument that comes second in its seeming simplicity only to the triangle. However, New York vibraphonist Joe Locke has taken this instrument to new heights with his eclectic jazz recordings. This week Locke is performing in Moscow with the Igor Butman Quartet. The concert begins at 9:30 p.m. Thursday in Le Club, 21 Verkhnyaya Radishchevskaya. Metro Taganskaya. Tel. 915-1042.
