Bella Lewitzky's inspired idea of a series entitled "In the Works" deserves the attention of the arts organizations of Los Angeles ("Lewitzky Series Offers Therapy for the Intimidated" by Douglas Sadownick, Jan. 20).

The next time you're at a $750-a-plate fund-raiser for the opera, check Placido Domingo's shadow. In it, you're likely to find a solid citizen named Marc Stern. You've probably never heard of Stern, but when a million-dollar gift falls through or a soprano comes down with a sore throat or the artistic director has a brainstorm, Stern, the chairman of the opera's board of directors, gets a call.
