Lincoln Center appears to be gripped with that familiar and popular Wagnerian disease, "Ring" fever. The plaza outside the Metropolitan Opera House was mobbed Monday night with people trying to get in and people hoping to get in. The fact that Bette Davis was being feted by the film society next door at Avery Fisher Hall seemed purely incidental. The Met, capacity 4,000, was hopelessly sold out. With a good orchestra-level seat costing $95, price obviously was no object. It wasn't as if New Yorkers were just making the acquaintance of Wagner's mighty, massive, sprawling, convoluted, irrational, impossible, swollen, poignant 16-hour tetralogy.

An Emmy-winning and Oscar-nominated makeup artist and her photographer husband were found dead in their Venice home in what authorities believe was a murder-suicide. Hallie D'Amore, 64, who was nominated for an Academy Award in 1995 for her work with two others on "Forrest Gump," apparently shot her husband, Richard D'Amore, 66, multiple times before turning the gun on herself, police said.

Jason D'Amore of Manhattan Beach Mira Costa shot a school-record seven-under-par 65 at Griffith Park's Wilson Golf Course on Thursday to clinch the Bay League tournament medalist honors with a 10-under 134, which is a 36-hole school record. D'Amore shot three-under 69 at Harding Golf Course on Tuesday to forge a three-way tie with John Lim of South Torrance and teammate Brandin Cohen at the halfway point of the tournament.

DONIZETTI: "L'ELISIR D'AMORE." Katia Ricciarelli, Jose Carreras, Leo Nucci, Domenico Trimarchi; Orchestra and Chorus of Italian Radio, Turin, conducted by Claudio Scimone. Philips 412 714-2 (two compact discs). Profound disappointment marks the first compact disc recording of Donizetti's durable sentimental comedy. Scimone presides over a robust performance characterized by endless tempo flexibility and excessive, if often endearing, spotlighting of individual instruments.

It was a grand night Saturday at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. Los Angeles Music Center Opera was unveiling a handsome if sometimes eccentric new production of Donizetti's "L'Elisir d'Amore" (The Elixir of Love), which it created with Grand Thea^tre de Geneve. But L.A. was getting it first. It was well sung, well acted, well conducted and well played. It did not efface memories of, say, Luciano Pavarotti and Kathleen Battle. But it was not star-dependent nor star-struck either.

Donizetti's should-be charming, must-be stylish "L'Elisir d'Amore" has returned to the War Memorial Opera House after a seven-year absence in a revival that honors a lazy, laissez-faire tradition. San Francisco has poured a flat new elixir into a shabby old bottle. When this production was first seen, 25 years ago, it represented the first independent effort here by an extraordinarily resourceful stage director named Lotfi Mansouri.

In the heyday of San Diego Opera's most adventuresome programming, when Tito Capobianco was more eager to be reviewed in The New York Times than to balance the books, the flamboyant former general director revived a sequence of obscure 19th-Century operas. While this meant that local opera buffs could join that privileged minority who had seen, for example, Verdi's early opera buffa , "King for a Day," they also missed out on many of the staples of the repertory.

New YORK's Jewish delis are widely regarded as the best in the country. But even my most New York-centric friends will admit that the hand-cut pastrami at Langer's Deli, just west of downtown Los Angeles, is better than the pastrami at any New York deli. Los Angeles also has great hot dogs, hamburgers and tacos -- and great examples of virtually every Asian cuisine But we don't have great pizza. Good pizza? Yes. Absolutely.

When you do it all for love, going against long odds and the advice of those who have been there before you, well, that's amore, right? Or more precisely, in the case of John Anthony Calabrese, viola d'amore. A bowed string instrument roughly the size and shape of a big, modern viola, the "viola of love" is strung in a truly weird way with two sets of metal strings, usually totaling 14.

There are no big names on the stage or in the pit of the Civic Theater for the San Diego Opera version of Donizetti's "L'Elisir d'Amore." The ensemble is dominated by bright young artists who seem equally concerned with dramatic credibility and musical virtue. Robert Darling's naive turntable set and pleasant-peasant costumes date back to Lotfi Mansouri's low-budget production in San Francisco some 20 years ago.

Following in the footsteps of a legend isn't an easy job. Just ask the coaches who succeeded John Wooden at UCLA. But the pressure to maintain a winning tradition was the last thing on Jim D'Amore's mind Friday night at El Camino College. His thoughts were on a colleague who won't be around much longer. D'Amore, Carson High's veteran defensive coordinator, had just watched the Colts defeat Banning, 37-16, for the L.A.
