Print show opens in Arlington

The 13th Washington International Print Fair opened yesterday and continues today at the Rosslyn Westpark Hotel in Arlington, Va. Featured are 29 exhibitors, and works include 19th- and 20th-century American and European prints, 16th- and 17th-century Dutch prints, and 20th-century Latin-American prints. German expressionism, Audubon birds, natural history, antique maps, art deco and sporting art are among the subjects covered. Show hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Rosslyn Westpark is at 1900 N. Fort Myer Drive in Arlington. For information, call (202) 638-6008. The Handel Choir of Baltimore sings the Passover story this afternoon in Handel's 1739 work "Israel in Egypt," under music director T. Herbert Dimmock. The piece, which was written for two large choruses, orchestra and soloists, tells of the Israelites' plight and sets to music the plagues that God set upon their Egyptian masters in the biblical story. The performance is 3 p.m. today at Beth Tfiloh Congregation, 3300 Old Court Road. A free lecture at 2 p.m. precedes the concert. Concert tickets are $12 and $17 and are available at An Die Musik or at the door. For information, call (410) 366-6544. "Blood Brothers" -- a musical about twin brothers separated at birth and raised in vastly different social classes -- opens a one-week run at the Lyric Opera House, 140 W. Mount Royal Ave., on Tuesday.

With a book, music and lyrics by Willy Russell, "Blood Brothers" stars Petula Clark, who made her Broadway debut as the twins' mother, and David Cassidy, also reprising his Broadway role, as the disadvantaged twin. Show times are 8 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 7:30 p.m. Sunday, with matinees 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $20-$45. For more information call (410) @
