The Washington Ballet, performing at the Kennedy Center, is offering an inspired program of choreography and dancing, even though Graham Lustig's new ballet, "Hearts of Light," needs some adjustments.The abstract, lyrical ballet, which is set to Sir Michael Tippet's music, "Fantasia Concertante on a Theme of Corelli," has a theatrical, almost Shakespearean sheen. At the start, the dancers step forward and take bows with a flourish; they form tableaux that spring to life, create small dramas with one another and give sparkling solos.

ALEXANDRIA, Va. - In a setback for the government, a federal judge ordered yesterday that four men whom prosecutors had linked to a violent terrorist group be released until trial - even as another judge ruled that a fifth suspect must remain in custody. Taken as a whole, the actions suggested a weaker case than the one the Justice Department portrayed last week, when it unsealed an indictment that it called a step forward in the war against terrorism. At one point yesterday, prosecutors even agreed that one defendant posed no threat to the community and should be released without bail until trial.
