That an opera inspired by Shakespeare's "Hamlet" should have suffered a tragic fate has a certain irony. Whether Franco Faccio's "Amleto" deserved it is another matter. This week, Baltimore Concert Opera will make a fresh case for the piece, which has gone unheard since 1871. "I think the music is gorgeous, sweeping and melodic," says Anthony Barrese, the Chicago-based conductor who unearthed "Amleto" and will lead the performance. "But, at this point, I have no objectivity at all. " Barrese has spent more than a decade trying to put Faccio's forgotten work back in the spotlight.

I was already a huge Beatles fan when the group performed at the Baltimore Civic Center on Sept. 13, 1964. So that's why my Catonsville friends were surprised to learn where I spent that evening: at home. Those same friends were again surprised about 10 years later when I told them how I had met Paul McCartney by accident (well, sort of). Let me connect the dots between those two stories. I became an instant fan of The Beatles after hearing their music on Baltimore WCAO-AM radio in late 1963.

Beers at large-scale concert venues aren't cheap. Depending on the place, a cold one can run you close to $10. We compared the cost and size of a Budweiser draft at three local music spots. Here is what we found: Merriweather Post Pavilion: A 24-ounce draft Bud will run you $8 at the wooded amphitheater. It's a quarter more than 1st Mariner Arena, but it's also the only even price on our list. The other concession stands will give you back a quarter or two. 1st Mariner Arena: Old arena, contemporary prices: Here, a 24-ounce draft Budweiser costs $7.75, which is about the same as Merriweather.

Far from the smoothest production imaginable, and a little too reminiscent of a typical, lightweight PBS fundraiser, the "Star-Spangled Spectacular" concert Saturday night at Pier Six nonetheless delivered a decent level of entertainment for a sizable, enthusiastic crowd. In his opening remarks, the host, actor John Lithgow, called the program "a tribute to a great national treasure, American music. " That meant mostly the pop side of the musical spectrum, of course, since this event was nationally broadcast and nothing too classical would likely have been approved.

The just-completed Performing Arts and Humanities Building atop the campus of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, makes quite a statement from almost every angle — the sun-reflecting, stainless-steel-wrapped Concert Hall; the glass-enclosed Dance Cube jutting from the structure; views of the downtown Baltimore skyline from upper floors. Phase one of the project was finished two years ago; phase two wrapped up in time for this week's start of UMBC's academic year. The $160 million, environmentally conscious edifice brings together under one roof (painted white for maximum reflection and energy savings)

Paul Manna got his start booking wedding bands for $50 a week plus 15 percent to 20 percent commission. It was a way into music, which he knew he wanted, but it wasn't quite right. "My heart wasn't in booking wedding bands," said Manna, who, at 47, still remembers vividly the thrill of his first concert when he was 15 — Ted Nugent at the Civic Center in Baltimore. Since he started 24-7 Entertainment in 1997, he's been working to provide that excitement for audiences, booking about 100 shows a year in the Baltimore area.

We knew Frank Underwood could cheat, connive, even murder. But sing? Apparently so. Actor Kevin Spacey, whose malevolent "House of Cards" character has schemed his way to the U.S. presidency, will be showcasing (we hope) an entirely different side of his talents when he takes to the concert stage at D.C.'s Shakespeare Theatre on Sept. 29. The Oscar-winning actor, whose "House of Cards" is currently filming its third season here in Baltimore, told the Associated Press his show will feature some Billy Joel, some Simon & Garfunkel and some Frank Sinatra, along with some storytelling and "a surprise guest or two. " He'll be backed by a 40-piece orchestra.
