In 1949, Maria Callas made the history books by singing Elvira in Bellini's "I Puritani" only three days after she sang Brunnhilde in Wagner's "Die Walkure." That kind of vocal versatility--shifting from Wagnerian breadth and weight to bel canto high extension and coloratura--hadn't been heard since Lilli Lehmann in the 1890s. Jane Eaglen had a little more time.

Jane Eaglen has all the talent of a true opera diva, but seemingly none of the attitude. The English-born soprano, whose star has been steadily rising as one of the great Wagnerian singers of her time, loves to laugh, go to amusement parks and sing along with Bon Jovi CDs. She also has latched onto the Internet as a way to stay in touch with family and friends while touring, which she does a lot.

I'd pay a lot of money to see Jane Eaglen's revised version of Mozart's "Don Giovanni" ("Call Her the Happiest Voice on Earth," by Jan Breslauer, Nov. 17), where Donna Anna dies instead of vigorously singing out that the wicked old Don is dead while cuddling sumptuously with the lucky Don Ottavio.

Wagner built his epic cycle "The Nibelung's Ring" from the ground up. Actually he dips lower than that, into the depths of the Rhine, where mermaids frolic, where magic gold glistens, and where begins the downfall of the imperious but all-too-human gods in the heavens above. And so the cycle's prologue, "The Rhinegold," enters our consciousness first as a rumble of double basses, a barely audible and slowly vibrating deep E-flat.

Wolves howl again in Yellowstone. But in the Southwest, there is only wailing and gnashing of teeth, as environmentalists face reality: Stone dead are U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service plans to reintroduce the wolf to public lands in Arizona and New Mexico. Politically powerful ranchers pulled the trigger on the Mexican wolf (Canis lupus baileyi). Sen. Pete V. Domenici (R-N.M.), their ally, killed the wolf's chances even in bleak and hostile places like New Mexico's White Sands Missile Range.

After putting on the best performance of "The Marriage of Figaro" in a generation, Bryn Terfel and Renee Fleming returned to the Metropolitan Opera for "Don Giovanni," which airs on PBS tonight. But although they had been surrounded with an all-star ensemble for the "Figaro" telecast, televised just after Christmas last year, the casting was not as deep for "Don Giovanni."

The Los Angeles Music Center Opera's 11th season, announced by company General Director Peter Hemmings on Tuesday, includes one world premiere, three productions new to Los Angeles and three revivals. Among the highlights of the seven-opera, 47-performance season, from Sept. 4 through June 21, 1997, will be the opening production, a brand-new "Pagliacci" by Franco Zeffirelli in which company advisor Placido Domingo will sing the role of Canio.

Jorge Mester and the Pasadena Symphony -- a powerhouse team entering their 20th year together -- opened the orchestra's 77th season Saturday night in Pasadena Civic Auditorium. Their performance of a Richard Strauss program turned out to be well played, brilliant, sometimes raucous. It began and ended with the bombastic: the heroic and hormonally charged tone poem "Don Juan," and the final scene from "Salome," in which celebrated Wagnerian Jane Eaglen was the bright-voiced soloist.
