Early in "War Horse," the much-celebrated play now at the Hippodrome, a British farm boy named Albert tries to befriend Joey, a foal that his father bought with money intended for a mortgage payment. The anxious animal keeps his distance, but Albert is determined to breach the divide. After several attempts, the boy holds some feed behind his back, and the wary Joey slowly approaches. The whole scene produces a rare kind of theatrical magic, enough to make you quickly forget that the foal is a puppet operated by three humans, two inside and one out. If that moment, with all its charm and innocence, doesn't get to you, doesn't tug at whatever heartstrings you have, you may be in for a very uncomfortable ride.

Joey's earliest memories were mostly "a confusion of hilly fields and dark, damp stables. " But one thing he clearly remembered was the horse sale. "The terror of it stayed with me all of my life," he said. No wonder. Joey was the one being sold. That's how the popular 1982 book "War Horse" by children's author Michael Morpurgo begins. Told in Joey's voice, the story moves quickly from Devonshire in southwestern England, where the horse is lovingly raised on a farm by a boy named Albert, to the hideous battlefields of France in World War I after Joey is sold to the British army for use in the cavalry.

Each week The Sun's John McIntyre presents a relatively obscure but evocative word with which you may not be familiar, another brick to add to the wall of your vocabulary. This week's word:  HACKNEYED Many people fail to recognize the buried metaphors in English that derive from the time that horses were commonly used for transportation. That is why you find the mistaken free reign  for free rein  in student papers. Free rein  for surrender of control to another is a hackneyed metaphor, worn so smooth by use that it is scarcely recognized as such.

The Broadway phenomenon known as “The Book of Mormon,” a musical from the creators of “South Park” that became a runaway hit two years ago and shows no signs of flagging, will reach Baltimore next season as part of the Hippodrome's 10th anniversary. Joining “Mormon,” which took the Tony Award for best musical in 2011, will be the Tony winner for best play that year, “War Horse,” a show celebrated for its inventive use of life-sized puppetry. One of last year's big Tony accumulators, “Peter and the Starcatcher,” a play with music based on the novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, is also on the Hippodrome lineup.

The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra is serving up a meaty program this week and is welcoming back some substantial guest artists to help deliver it. Midori, the supernaturally gifted violinist and energetic champion of music education, makes her first BSO appearance since 2001 playing Bartok's Violin Concerto No. 2. On Thursday night at Meyerhoff Hall, she burrowed so deeply into this complex and ever-fascinating score that she seemed to be composing it...

No matter how many good, even great, things we have going on in dear old Baltimore, there is always room for improvement or expansion -- well, always room for hoping, at least.  So, this being the start of a new year when we are all supposed to focus on fresh ideas, I thought I would offer a suggestion that might give the local arts scene a boost: A city-wide festival. It has been a little more than a decade since Baltimore witnessed a multi-genre, multi-organization festival.

He was a young man when he first started working voters outside School 85 on election days. On the eve of his 73rd birthday yesterday, he was out there again, puffing on his Winstons, flirting with women and calling to friends leaving the voting booths inside."

The last time Yuri Temirkanov conducted the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra was back in December - in Germany, where the ensemble's European tour ended. The last time he stood on a podium in Meyerhoff Symphony Hall was less than two weeks ago - leading the St. Petersburg Philharmonic. Given the combination of his prolonged absence and that recent triumphant appearance with his other orchestra, Temirkanov's return to the BSO for concerts this weekend cannot help but generate extra interest.

John's Call, the 10-year-old gelding from Maryland, will bypass the Sussex Handicap tomorrow at Delaware Park and run instead in the Man o' War Stakes on Sept. 8 at Belmont Park, trainer Tom Voss said yesterday. Voss said he was concerned about the condition of Delaware Park's turf course and also wanted to give John's Call another week to recover from his last-place finish Aug. 11 in a Saratoga stakes in which he bled from the lungs for the first time. Voss since has breezed John's Call for the first time on Lasix and will use the anti-bleeding medicine at Belmont as the gelding tries to be the oldest horse to win a Grade I non-steeplechase race.

In the warm, comfortable living room of Jonah House, the "community of conscience" he calls home, 75-year-old Philip Berrigan greets a visitor, then settles back into a rocking chair. He looks for all the world like a fellow ready to simply sit and rock and whittle. He's not.Berrigan has spent half a lifetime fighting for what he calls "peace and justice." He's preached, protested, demonstrated and been arrested in myriad actions against war and nuclear weapons. He has no plans to stop now. Barely five months off a two-year prison stretch he did for an anti-war protest, what Berrigan wants to talk about this day is a demonstration that could land him right back in the federal pen.In the morning, he'll be out in front of a federal office building, protesting on behalf of members of the Jonah House community who have been barred from returning home by the federal probation system.
