The fact that the Los Angeles Jewish Symphony is making a big deal out of its 18th anniversary concert on Sunday at the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre - and isn't sure whether it will treat its 20th as a special occasion - is just the latest unique happenstance flowing from Noreen Green's decision to strike up an orchestra different from all other orchestras. Her idea of forming an ensemble that follows Jewish threads through the classical and pops traditions has had enough staying power to reach a milestone that is itself uniquely Jewish.

There was no dearth of duende -- soul -- at the Ford Amphitheatre on Saturday, when "Forever Flamenco: L.A. Ole!" took the chill off the night air. Produced by the Fountain Theatre's godmother of flamenco, Deborah Lawlor, the 2 1/2 -hour show sizzled with 10 singers, dancers and musicians. Unlike Hollywood, which worships at the altar of youth, flamenco operates in a reverse ageism universe, revering maturity, as evidenced in Roberto Amaral.

Los ANGELES homeowners weren't the only ones inconvenienced by January's heavy rains. Thanks to water that ran down the hillside into the John Anson Ford Theatre interior space -- known as [Inside] the Ford -- a program for small theater companies has been postponed. That program, etc@ITF, was to allow six companies without spaces of their own to hold workshops, training sessions and seminars at the Ford, starting this winter.

Walking a tightrope, jumping on stilts and juggling fire, sabers and steel "poison" balls: They're all featured in circus and theater artist Nathan Stein's one-man tour de force, "A Fisherman Out of Water." The show, playing Saturday as part of the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre's Big!World!Fun! eclectic family arts matinee series, is a multi-character combination of comedy, fable and circus artistry. "It's not storytelling," Stein says, "it's story showing."
