Rodgers & Hammerstein:

'Last Year at Marienbad':

In an incredibly witty and audacious piece of programming, the Charles Theatre revival series sends out the old year with Alain Resnais' Last Year at Marienbad, the chicest art house movie of 1962 - complete with Chanel dresses. Dwight Macdonald, the hippest tastemaker of the time, called it "a charade, a masque, beautiful to the eyes." It screens at noon Saturday and 7 p.m. Monday at the theater, 1711 N. Charles St. Call 410-727-3456 or go to thecharles.com.

Wu Tang Clan:

One of the most dynamic collectives in hip-hop, Wu Tang Clan splices disparate textures and styles to create a signature sound. Once it overlays that with the dense, wicked lines of such MCs as Method Man and Ghostface Killa, it has some of the most resonant cuts of the genre. See the group at 8 p.m. Wednesday at Sonar Lounge, 407 E. Saratoga St. Tickets are $55-$150. Call 410-547-7823 or go to ticketmaster.com.

'The Sound of Music' :

It's got Nazis, singing, cute kids and even Julie Andrews as a wannabe nun. Yeah, this 1965 movie musical has all the bases covered, making it a holiday staple worthy of annual airings. Andrews stars as a chaste governess who falls for her boss, a noble Austrian military officer, just as the Nazis begin taking control of the country. The Sound of Music airs 8 p.m. Sunday on WMAR, Channel 2.

Gingerbread houses:

Kids always love one more gingerbread house, especially if it's a gingerbread mini-museum. A small-scale "gingerbrick" replica of Port Discovery will be on display 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday. Children can create their own gingerbread men as well. Free with admission to Port Discovery, 35 Market Place. Call 410-727-8120 or go to portdiscovery.org.
