Like so many dreams that come and go here, this one began with the harvest under a brutal sky. It was a late afternoon in August, 103 degrees outside, and the boys from the McFarland High cross-country team had been at it since 5 in the morning. They had spent the day in long sleeves and bandannas working without words alongside their parents deep in the fields. They were spread across farms for miles around, but the toil did not vary. They stooped and crawled.

Re "Plaza Hopes to Subsidize Big-Name Act," Oct. 3. I was astounded to read that the Alliance for the Arts was considering the reallocation of funds from local theater and musical groups to subsidize big-name acts such as Ricky Martin and 'N Sync. The maximum seating for the Fred Kavli Theater is only 1,800 and these "big acts" usually bring in $500,000 to $1 million. You do the math. This seems to me to be both fiscally absurd and patently unfair to local groups that work very hard to keep their organizations solvent.

Ruth Margraff's "The Elektra Fugues" is a fragmented, poetic vision of history's ultimate dysfunctional family on the eve of its collapse. In this intriguing Bottom's Dream production at the Ivy Substation, Margraff transports Euripides' tragedy "Electra" to America for an opera of emotional discord. Elektra (Alice Dodd), a disenfranchised punk-rock teen, seems repellent beside her good-girl sister, Chrysothemis (Cheryl White).
