Abandon all humbug, ye who enter the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's Holiday Spectacular.

Part old-fashioned sentiment and part old-fashioned show-biz, the extravaganza that opened Friday night before a packed house has turned Meyerhoff Symphony Hall into a Radio City Music Hall South, complete with orchestra, chorus, costumed production numbers, a juggler and a full-blown kick line (Santas, in this case, rather than glam-figured Rockettes).

If you go The BSO's Holiday Spectacular will be performed at 2 p.m. Wednesday, 7:30 p.m. Thursday, 7:30 p.m. Friday, 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, 1212 Cathedral St. Tickets are $25 to $75. Call 410-783-8000 or go to
