Seen from a helicopter, the urban monster turns tame and beautiful. The hemisphere's second-biggest city unfolds like a tapestry beneath the helicopter piloted by Marcos de Almeida Buozi. A night of rain has made it all gleam. Pale forests of skyscrapers. Squat gray automotive factories. Orange and brown shantytowns splattered across hillsides. To veteran pilots like Buozi, the landscape blooms with opportunity.

Teenagers in black jeans and hoodies sit sipping vodka on the sidewalk. At a venue down a few blocks of graffiti-covered walls, a man in a shark costume belts out rock songs. Outside a dance club, well-paid fashion designers mingle with street punks and transvestite prostitutes. It's far from the tropical sun, sex and samba image of Brazil that looms large in the mind of tourists. Rapid change is gripping Brazil, especially Sao Paulo, the largest city in South America and the most expensive in the Western Hemisphere.

The postcard visions that Brazilian music conjures of swaying bodies and sybaritic beaches come from our visual iconography of Rio de Janeiro, one of the world's most photogenic locales. But rising Brazilian chanteuse Luísa Maita, who performs Tuesday night at the Del Monte Speakeasy in Venice, hails from the city that today is Brazil's true music capital: drizzly, noisy, congested São Paulo. South America's largest metropolis, with a population of more than 11 million, São Paulo has been affectionately described by one U.S. travel writer as the "ugliest, most dangerous city you'll ever love.

In a popular Brazilian novel, 21st-Century Sao Paulo has become an urban nightmare of overpopulation and decay. Garbage piles up in 77 mountains, all teeming with impoverished people, and a putrid stench fills the hot air. The streets are jammed with bicycles. A freeway stretches lifelessly into the distance, clogged with the bumper-to-bumper carcasses of cars that were caught in a final, permanent traffic jam.

The number of animals killed by poison at the Sao Paulo Zoo has risen to 73, and police said they still lacked sufficient evidence to charge suspects. The leading detective on the case, Clovis Ferreira de Araujo, told reporters that some suspects continued to work at the zoo. Araujo said police were looking into groups that might have benefited financially from the animals' deaths. He did not elaborate.

The West Coast premiere of Osvaldo Golijov's "La Pasion Segun San Marcos" (The Passion According to St. Mark) and the U.S. debut of the Orquestra de Sao Paulo, Brazil, will be among the highlights of the 2002-03 season presented by the Philharmonic Society of Orange County.

To interview German artist Sigmar Polke is to know how Margaret Dumont must've felt trying to get a straight answer out of the Marx Brothers. Granted, it's kind of fun having Polke run circles around you as he deftly deflects every question you lob his way, but it's hard to respect yourself later when you realize that he got through the interview without revealing much about himself. He's an elusive character, but he's so bloody charming it's easy to overlook that fact.
