Bacchus & Me: Adventures in the Wine Cellar, by Jay McInerney (Vintage paperback, 278 pages, $13). For a dozen years in the 1970s and 1980s, I wrote a weekly newspaper column on wine while earning an honest living editing editorial pages and opinion columns. It began largely because in the early 1970s my fellow editors at The Philadelphia Inquirer and I could not find a syndicated column that we trusted. Already a serious enthusiast, I learned a lot, had a great deal of fun and continued to find that though there was a swiftly increasing tribe of wine writers, few of them offered much in the way of delight.

A Howard County Circuit Court jury is scheduled today to begin weighing the fate of a Columbia woman charged with first-degree murder in the strangulation death last year of her friend. The defense put on its last witness yesterday in the case of Melissa Burch Harton, 26, who admitted to Howard County police that she choked fellow Loyola College doctoral student Natasha Bacchus Magee, 31, of Stewartstown, Pa. Closing arguments are set for this morning and will be followed by jury deliberations.

It's probably safe to say that Elaine de Kooning is as well represented in Baltimore right now as she ever has been anywhere. There are 76 paintings, drawings and pastels dating from 1942, when she was 24, to 1988, the year before she died, in two shows: a retrospective at the Maryland Institute College of Art and an exhibit at the C. Grimaldis Gallery.They are nicely complementary. The retrospective covers her entire career, while the Grimaldis show concentrates primarily on her last and best period -- the works of the mid- to late 1980s based on her visit to the prehistoric cave paintings at Lascaux, France.

The Baltimore Choral Arts Society opened its 37th season over the weekend by celebrating its raison d'etre - and 20 years of leadership from Tom Hall. The program, a re-creation of his first with the ensemble in 1982, contained two works that reflect on the power of music and music-making, and music's patron saint, Cecilia. Never mind that the historical Cecilia lived centuries before the birth of Western music and may have had little or no musical inclinations. Somehow, she became associated with the art form and inspired both the poetry and the music performed with considerable affection and polish by the chorus Sunday afternoon at Goucher College's Kraushaar Auditorium.

A Howard County Circuit Court judge sentenced a 26-year-old Columbia woman yesterday to 10 years in prison - the maximum allowed by law - for involuntary manslaughter in the death of her friend and fellow Loyola College doctoral student. Melissa Burch Harton was convicted Feb. 10 in the strangulation of 31-year-old Natasha Bacchus Magee of Stewartstown, Pa. She will be eligible for parole in about 18 months. Her attorney, Michael Kaminkow, said that he will ask a three-judge panel to reduce the sentence.

With a split screen, it's technically possible to watch two TV shows simultaneously. If those shows were, say, I Love Lucy and Dragnet, the resulting fusion would be more or less akin to what happens in Richard Strauss' opera Ariadne auf Naxos. If you added to the mix a little Monty Python's Flying Circus and South Park, you might get something akin to Peabody Opera Theatre's engaging production of Ariadne. Except that the music wouldn't be nearly as glorious. Even played straight, the opera has plenty of zaniness.

The Washington Opera's current production of Richard Strauss' "Ariadne auf Naxos" is almost pure magic: beautiful sets, insightful direction, wizardly lighting and solid singing make it as good as anything you're likely to see on stage this season."
