The 10th leg of the All-Star season took the five teams from Zurich, Switzerland to Seville, Spain. Here's what we saw in Spain. In this week's very entertaining Detour, we saw bulls running through the streets of Seville. Well, not actually bulls. The teams, along with a phalanx of bullies that were hired to knock them off their feet, were outfitted in big plastic "bumberz. " The other detour choice, leanring a flamenco routine, looked like it was a cinch. Only the Country Singers chose it, though.

Chicago -- Expo '92 in Seville is a ''universal exposition,'' the highest grade of world's fair, the kind that has in the past marked historical epochs. We turned down the chance to host this Expo, a century after the famous Columbian Exposition in Chicago.The Reagan administration went about planning for the Seville Expo as it went about the preparations in this country for the quincentennial of Columbus' voyage. Republican fund-raisers were put in charge of both operations, people who had donated to the Reagan election effort.

Annapolis Opera brought its capacity audiences a comfortably traditional production of Gioachino Rossini's Il Barbiere di Siviglia (The Barber of Seville) last weekend at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts. With the downbeat to the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra for the world's most famous overture, musical director Ronald J. Gretz signaled the spirited performance to follow. The comedic opera is a 19th-century musical adaptation of Beaumarchais' 1775 play about the rapscallion Figaro's efforts to help lovestruck Count Almaviva in his pursuit of wealthy and lovely Rosina, the ward of lecherous Dr. Bartolo.

SEVILLE, Spain -- It was well after 10 p.m., and the tables scattered around the small square in the Barrio de Santa Cruz were full of people. A group of young people who had been talking and drinking beer launched into a traditional emotion-filled flamenco song, complete with guitars and the intricate syncopated clapping that marks the style.Conversations flowed, waiters and waitresses from the restaurants lining the ancient square brought beers and food, the moon smiled down like a generous, welcoming host.

That is, they will share more components as Cadillac prepares for corporate approval to build only Cadillacs at the Hamtramck plant near Detroit that also builds Buick Rivieras and Olds Toronados.

Spanish researchers say they've won permission to open a tomb in the Dominican Republic purported to hold the remains of Christopher Columbus, edging closer to solving a century-old mystery over whether those bones or a rival set in Spain are the real thing. A team of two high school teachers from Seville and a leading Spanish forensic geneticist has been testing 500-year-old bone slivers for more than two years to try to pinpoint the final resting place of the explorer who arrived in the New World by accident in 1492 on an expedition chartered by Spain's King Ferdinand and Queen Isabel.

To those who think that everything in a society and its culture must move in lock-step at times of crisis, the Maryland Film Festival might seem to be "off-message" with its six-day presentation of two Vietnam-protest documentaries, Investigation of a Flame and Unfinished Symphony, starting today at the Charles. But Investigation of a Flame, about the May 1968 "action" of the Catonsville Nine, and Unfinished Symphony, which centers on the May 1971 march from Concord to Bunker Hill by Vietnam Veterans Against the War, are in essence patriotic films.

BRUSSELS, Belgium -- When NATO defense ministers gather Wednesday in Seville, Spain, for their annual informal meeting, there will be a new face at the table -- that of French Defense Minister Francois Leotard.It is not that Mr. Leotard himself is new to the job. He has held his post since the French right returned to power in parliamentary elections 18 months ago.What is new is that a French defense minister will be in Seville at all.Indeed, Mr. Leotard's participation in the three-day gathering marks the first time France has attended such a meeting since the late President Charles de Gaulle pulled his nation out of the military side of the 16-member North Atlantic Treaty Organization in 1966 amid accusations that the alliance was little more than a tool for U.S. domination of Europe.
