For its new album, Plain White T's looked to the circus for inspiration. The French-Canadian circus, no less. Before he started writing "The Wonders of the Younger," lead singer Tom Higgenson had gone to see "O" by Cirque du Soleil, a show that revolves around a million-gallon pool. Acrobats pull all sorts of synchronized stunts under and above the water. Higgenson was awed. "It flooded me with memories of my youth — it reminded me of movies like "The Goonies" and "Back to the Future" and that feeling of 'wow,'" he said.

While the Baltimore Opera Company's just completed run of Saint-Saens' "Samson et Delilah" was by all accounts a resounding success, it probably didn't win any new converts to "the extravagant art." For years the company has sought a balance between hardy perennials and less familiar classics that would allow it to grow artistically while appealing to a larger audience, particularly among young people. But recent efforts seem to have been mostly hit or miss affairs in that regard.Perhaps recognizing that nothing sells tickets like beautiful melodies sung by doomed heroines besieged by intrigue, human sacrifice and revenge, the BOC has announced a lineup for next season that includes two of the greatest tear-jerkers ever written, Verdi's "La Traviata" and Puccini's "Tosca."

"Gaudi Afternoon," by Barbara Wilson, 172 pages, The Seal Press, Seattle, Washington, $8.95. BARBARA Wilson's amateur private eye Cassandra Reilly doesn't have much in common with old-timers like Sam Spade, except perhaps for her sexual preference. She likes women, too. Probably a little more than Sam.She's not as hard-boiled as Spade or Philip Marlowe or even Lew Archer, but she's tough and smart and she's been around. Cassandra, nee Catherine Frances Reilly in Kalamazoo, Mich., is really well traveled.

If murder is unthinkable to most people, the notion of being obsessed by love is not. The story of one person risking everything for another who does not return such ardor permeates myth, literature great and small, many movies, most soaps, all tabloids and, seemingly, half of popular music.It is a universal idea, as old as Menelaus and Helen, David and Bathsheba, and has been so romanticized that rare is the adolescent who escapes the pull of an ostensibly tragic passion that overwhelms life.
