Commissiona will conduct BSO in concert series

Very few conductors lead the brilliantly colored music of France and Russia as well as Sergiu Comissiona. So the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra laureate conductor's concerts this week at the Meyerhoff Hall should be among the new year's high points. The beloved Romanian will conduct excerpts from Prokofiev's "Romeo and Juliet," Rachmaninoff's "Caprice Bohemien" and Ravel's G Major Concerto (with the fine Canadian pianist Louis Lortie). Tickets are $17 to $48 for the 8:15 p.m. concerts Thursday and Friday, and $10-$26 for the performance at 11 a.m. Saturday. Call (410) 783-8000 for tickets and details.

"Spike Heels, a romantic comedy by Theresa Reback that touches on such issues as sexual harassment and class conflict, opens Friday at the Vagabond Players, 806 S. Broadway. Directed by Suzanne Beal, the cast features Claudia Berman, Tony Colavito, Rick Clark and Stacey Werling.

Curtain times are 8:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Sundays, through Feb. 5. Tickets are $9 and $10, and vTC the theater cautions that the play contains adult language. "Spike Heels" replaces the Vagabonds' previously announced production of "Someone Who'll Watch Over Me." Call (410) 563-9135.


J. Wynn Rousuck Joshua Dorman's landscape paintings can originate in locales as specific as an herb garden in Vermont, but by the time those locales have been sifted through the artist's mind and ended up on canvas they can take on a surreal and vaguely ominous character. An example is his "Before the Twister," with its strange light and tentacle-like tree branches. His paintings are part of a three-person show at Resurgam, 910 S. Charles St., through Jan. 14. The other two artists are Agnes Merrick, who creates hand-appliqued tapestries, and Carlene Moscatt, who specializes in handmade paperworks. Call (410) 962-0513.
