The earth did quake; the rocks rent, and the graves were opened. Then peace was made with God as Jesus' body came to rest. That peace, and with it the ability to notice beauty in all things, is expressed in the last aria of Bach's "St. Matthew Passion," which begins with the text, "Make thyself clean, my heart. " This aria is among the most sublime gifts given in all of music, a vision far better suited for the soul than the stage. Yet Peter Brook tailors it meticulously to "The Suit.

Luciano Pavarotti, in severe pain months before his cancer diagnosis, lip-synced his last performance, according to the maestro who conducted the aria at the opening ceremony of the Turin Olympics. The late tenor's manager said Monday the bitter cold made a live performance impossible at the 2006 Winter Games. The conductor, Leone Magiera, reveals in a book that the rousing rendition of "Nessun Dorma" ("Let No One Sleep") was prerecorded because "it would have been too dangerous for him to give a live performance in that physical condition."

"Gossip Girl" goes "Twin Peaks Lite" in ABC Family's mildly sinister romp "Pretty Little Liars," which premieres Tuesday. If the title doesn't let you know what you're in for, the tagline — "Never trust a pretty girl with an ugly secret" — will. Four sweet-16s reunite a year after their conniving queen bee Alison (Sasha Pieterse) goes missing during one dark and stormy drink 'n' sleepover. Aria ("Privileged's" Lucy Hale), whose family apparently hightailed it to Iceland moments after Alison's disappearance, has returned to picture-perfect Rosewood just in time for the anniversary.

Kirk Wood Bromley gets points for sheer eccentricity--he writes full-length dramas entirely in verse. His "Icarus and Aria," at Sacred Fools Theater, is a loose updating of "Romeo and Juliet." The play concerns the doomed romance between Aria (Kim Jackson), the privileged daughter of a wealthy football team owner, and Icarus (Matthew Troyer), a Latino football star from the 'hood.

In celebration of the start of its 2012-2013 season, Los Angeles Opera started partying early Saturday with a 5 p.m. reception and dinner on the Music Center Plaza, before the opening performance of Verdi's “The Two Foscari” at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. The crowd then returned to the plaza for a high-energy after-party, chaired by Stana Katic, star of TV's “Castle.” The gala theme of “Ignite!” proved appropriate not only because of the patron level categories of "blaze," "fire" and "flame" but also because the party ended a day of record-setting temperatures, which reached 103 degrees in downtown Los Angeles.

HLN should send Jodi Arias a fruit basket and a spa vacation. The cable channel's coverage of the Arias murder trial -- she is accused of killing her ex-boyfriend in 2008 at his Arizona home -- gave its first quarter numbers a nice boost, according to Nielsen. In March alone, HLN saw its total day ratings increase by 53% and prime time was up almost 50%. For the first three months, HLN is up 17% in total day and 12% in prime. For the news channels not obsessing over the Arias trial, it was a tougher quarter.

A party photographer apparently snapped some evidence in Las Vegas' recent homicide case -- a photo of the lead suspect near the scene of the crime wearing a T-shirt that featured a gun. A shooting on the Las Vegas Strip early Thursday morning that resulted in a traffic collision left three dead, triggering a manhunt for the shooting suspect, 26-year-old Ammar Harris, also known as Ammar Asim Faruq Harris. The shooting was thought to have begun after an argument in front of the Aria hotel valet stand sometime after 4 a.m. Valerie Darling, who works for a limousine company that often posts cars at the Aria, previously told the Los Angeles Times that the men involved had been inside the Aria's nightclub, called Haze.
