Low notes

Most bassos would sell their souls to sing the title role in Arrigo Boito's "Mefistofele." Samuel Ramey doesn't need to -- he already owns the part.

The great basso makes his belated Washington Opera debut in his signature role in a new production Sunday at the Kennedy Center.

Performances at the Kennedy Center are Sunday at 2 p.m.; March 5, March 8 and March 13 at 8 p.m.; March 11 and March 16 at 7 p.m.; and March 19 (with Barseg Tumanyan replacing Ramey in the title role) at 8 p.m. Tickets, at $52-$110, and further information are available by calling (202) 416-7800. Towson State University's 10th International Cello Festival, which begins tomorrow, draws cellists from all over the world.

The two-week festival's first important event takes place Sunday at 7:30 p.m. with a concert that features cellist (and festival organizer) Cecylia Barczyk, soprano Pamela Jordan and pianist Reynaldo Reyes in TSU's fine arts building.

For tickets (priced $8-$12) to this concert and further information about other events and concerts, many of them free, call (410) 830-2838.
