NEW YORK - Making two roster moves before last night's game at Yankee Stadium, the Orioles activated outfielder Gary Matthews from the disabled list and signed switch-hitting catcher Raul Casanova. The Orioles also outrighted pitcher Josh Towers to Triple-A Rochester to create room for Casanova on the 40-man roster. Towers cleared waivers after going 0-9 at Rochester and 0-3 with the Orioles. Matthews is restricted to pinch-running duties while his right wrist continues to heal. He took batting practice yesterday, but wasn't available to hit. "It's coming back, but it's just a slow process," said Matthews, who hasn't played since Aug. 23. "It's a sensitive area."

There are a few spots left at Thursday night's Casanova di Neri wine dinner at Aldo's. The dinner celebrates the re-release of the Brunello Tenuta Nuova 2007 from Casanova di Neri. A small, family company run by Giacomo Neri, Casanova di Neri has only 48 hectares of planted vineyards. In 2006, the Wine Spectator named their Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova 2001 the world's top wine, calling it "one of the best examples of the recent winemaking renaissance in Tuscany. " If that sounds like something you'd like to sip, give Aldo's a call.

Looking to improve their catching depth, the Orioles have brought in Raul Casanova for workouts and might sign him for the remainder of the season if he's healthy. The Milwaukee Brewers released Casanova, 30, last week after activating him from the disabled list. He batted .184 with one homer and eight RBIs in 31 games. Casanova didn't play after May 19 because of a torn ligament in his left elbow that occurred while diving into home plate. "They asked me to come here. They just want to see me," he said.

By happy chance, American audiences are now being treated to two collaborations between the British actor David Tennant and the British writer Russell T. Davies - big names Over There, smaller here - a coincidence that is less interesting in itself than the fact that one of them, Casanova, arrives through the august offices of PBS and Masterpiece Theater, while the other, the latest season of the renascent Doctor Who, is running on the lower-born Sci-Fi...

In Lasse Hallstrom's refreshingly uninhibited Casanova, the title character contends that he doesn't conquer women: He submits to them. You'll submit to the exuberance and ease of the director's take on the swashbuckling 18th-century free-thinker and hedonist. This merry, mercurial picture handles elaborate japes lightly. Exploiting Venice for all its voluptuary glory - Rome sees the city as a moral cesspit, libertines see it as a haven - the beautifully engineered farce depicts clashing notions of love and female destiny and the way false identities can spark genuine delights.

PAWTUCKET, R.I. - John Stephens pitched 6 1/3 scoreless innings to lead the Ottawa Lynx over the Pawtucket Red Sox, 2-0, and tie the best-of-five Triple-A International League semifinal series at two games apiece. Stephens (1-0), who walked one, yielded six hits and struck out three to pick up the win for the Orioles' affiliate. Darwin Cubillan pitched a perfect ninth to save the shutout. Raul Casanova hit a two-run homer to left field in the first inning to provide the only runs. Joey Hammond had two hits, and Napoleon Calzado and Luis Lopez both doubled for Ottawa, which has won back-to-back games to push the series to a fifth and deciding game today in Pawtucket.

"Casanova in Love," by Andrew Miller. Harcourt Brace. 270 pages. $23.In "Casanova in Love," Andrew Miller offers a carefully written novel that is, at the least, sui generis. And if it is not entirely successful in all it undertakes, it lingers in your head far longer than many novels that meet all their less-daring objectives.Miller sets himself an unusual task. Basing some of his writing on Casanova's own memoirs - he did live in London, and the lady in question did exist - he tells his story in the great serial lover's own voice.

Casanova's Parrot, by Mark Bryant (Carroll & Graf, 256 pages, $20). This is a frolicking compilation of bits of information and speculation about famous women and men and the pets they had. Some of the little pieces are narratives -- Casanova bought a parrot for the sole purpose of teaching it to squawk a slander about a woman who had rejected him. Others are multiple entries -- Winston Churchill had lots of dogs, cats and birds. Some pieces are perilously far-fetched: Virgil's ostensible pet fly, the notion that Mozart "owned a pet starling which he taught to whistle the theme of the last movement of his G Major Piano Concerto."

New York-- --Stockholm-born Lena Olin entered American movies 17 years ago with back-to-back masterpieces. She turned a bowler hat into a resounding erotic symbol as a Prague artist named Sabina in Phil Kaufman's The Unbearable Lightness of Being (1988). She won an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actress as an elemental, Holocaust-haunted New York immigrant in Paul Mazursky's Enemies, A Love Story (1989). Naturally, studio executives saw her as an heir to the Ingrid Bergman of Notorious - an actor who could send all the complications of Eros rippling to the surface without diluting their potency.

The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language describes a Casanova as a "man who is amorously and gallantly attentive to women" and as a "promiscuous man; a philanderer." Both definitions are based on the overheated life of Giovanni Jacopo Casanova de Seingalt, an Italian adventurer who lived 1725-98 and vividly wrote about his conquests of women. Given the subject matter, it's no surprise that Casanova and various womanizers have long been a popular subject in literature, plays and films.

A feature in which Sun writers and critics sound off about the movies. Audiences already are talking about the visual poetry of Terence Malick's The New World, about Felicity Huffman's amazing turn as a man in the last stages of a sex-change operation in Transamerica, about the ribald charm and wit of Lasse Hallstrom's Casanova, about Woody Allen's resurgence as a director of the Hitchcockian Match Point. Unfortunately, none of those audiences are in Baltimore, because none of those films has opened here yet. That's really not fair, to the filmgoers, or to the films.

Ruth Channing's etchings are witty, charming and serious all at once. Some of her recent small-scale ones, on view at Resurgam, originate in poetry, the autobiography of Casanova and subjects from early printmaking, such as "Death, the Raconteur," shown here.Channing is one of three artists in Resurgam's current show. The others are Jimmie Miller, whose brightly colored collages are abstract but often contain suggestions of architecture; and Carlene Bausch Moscatt, whose charcoal drawings employ subject matter from nature, including vines and leafy plants.
