On Robertson Boulevard south of Melrose, among the shops offering fine linens, designer furniture and Italian pottery, there is an awning announcing Jonathan H. Kent. The window display would catch the eye of anyone even mildly aware of art galleries in Los Angeles, because it is filled by a large canvas of a woman holding a bundle of callas, a painting by Diego Rivera that is on prominent display at the Norton Simon Museum of Art.

To help celebrate its 50th season next year, Santa Fe Opera has landed the American premiere of British composer Thomas Ades' first full-length opera, "The Tempest." With a libretto by playwright Meredith Oakes based loosely on Shakespeare's play, the work debuted at Covent Garden in London in February 2004 and won that year's Laurence Olivier Award as outstanding opera production. It will be the last of five new productions that make up the New Mexico opera company's 2006 summer season.

The woman, 31, tried to run away and was shot several times in the back.

Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle may be best known for "Trainspotting" and “Slumdog Millionaire,” but his globally upbeat opening ceremony for the 2012 London Olympics was named Theater Event of the Year on Sunday at London's audience-driven Whatsonstage.com awards . The lavish spectacle of British history and culture, "Isles of Wonder," was loosely based on Shakespeare's "The Tempest. " It beat out the Susan Boyle bio-musical, "I Dreamed a Dream” as well as an arena tour of "Jesus Christ Superstar" and "Globe to Globe's" season of 37 plays in 37 languages that was part of the World Shakespeare Festival.

On the sidewalks in front of Ventura College's art buildings, Kim Morris uses a thick piece of bright pink chalk to draw an outline around Taryn Alvarado on Tuesday afternoon. "Hey, you're moving your hand," Morris said. "You can't do that. You're supposed to be dead." After creating their own version of a police outline of a body, Morris and Alvarado filled in the figure with abstract doodles in a rainbow of colors.

When a certain kind of British actor snatches a certain brass ring in his career, it's "Hamlet" time. Roger Rees' Dane came after his triumph in "Nicholas Nickleby," and Daniel Day-Lewis' followed on a two-pronged film success, in "My Beautiful Laundrette" and "Room With a View." Now Ralph Fiennes, the actor who was so chilling as a Nazi in "Schindler's List" and touchingly insecure as Charles Van Doren in "Quiz Show," is going for the gold.

GOOD OL' Will Shakespeare never got to see his plays performed under the gorgeous Southern California sun. If he were to, he might be taken aback by the number of outdoor festivals held in his honor. This summer, nearly 20 companies from Santa Barbara to San Diego will take o'er yonder hills and dales in an outpouring of Bard-related love. These days, it takes a determined theater troupe to lure people away from malls and multiplexes for an evening of iambic pentameter poetry.
