The staging of "Rigoletto" that the New York City Opera will be using is by Tito Capobianco, as re-created at the Performing Arts Center by James Furlong, an assistant stage director with the company. For Scott Bergeson, who will be conducting "Rigoletto" here, Capobianco has provided much more than just staging. "We have a path that goes way back in my apprenticeship," Bergeson, 37, said recently.

For the opening of its brief, return engagement at the Orange County Performing Arts Center--seven performances, ending Sunday--New York City Opera presented Verdi's "Rigoletto" in a production first staged by Tito Capobianco in Lincoln Center last July. As a fresh look at a familiar masterpiece, Capobianco's latest "Rigoletto," seen on national television in September, has been called timid and uninspired. It lived up to that description in Segerstrom Hall Tuesday night.

I wish to differ with Times music critic Dan Cariaga in his appraisal of the cast in the "Rigoletto" performance at the Orange County Performing Arts Center ("N.Y. Company Opens Visit to Orange County With 'Rigoletto,' " Calendar, Jan. 19). I was there Jan. 17, and I felt the production lacked the bite, the intensity and the compelling urgency that makes for high drama. I do not share Cariaga's opinion that the orchestra played carefully and in admirable balance with the stage.

Citing "philosophical differences" over strategic direction and marketing style, two top officers have resigned from Osco Drugs, a subsidiary of Irvine-based American Stores. The change in command was announced Friday by Osco, which said its board had accepted the resignations. At a meeting last Tuesday, the board elected Richard A. Scott, formerly president of Osco Sav-on, as chairman and chief executive. He replaces Scott Bergeson.

Most opera companies turn to Lehar's "The Merry Widow" these days if and when they need a vehicle for a prima donna at twilight. The nice old operetta isn't often performed for its own merits. It is performed to showcase the diminishing but hopefully glamorous glories of a Sills or a Sutherland or, at the very least, an Evelyn Lear. That's the way it was in San Diego seven years ago when Tito Capobianco put on a tinselly "Merry Widow" show for and around everybody's darling, Beverly Sills.

When the New York City Opera played its last, ill-fated season at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion four years ago, it was a company in obvious trouble. The repertory had become stale, the performances were ragged and, artistic reins having just passed from Julius Rudel to Beverly Sills, the leadership did not seem exactly solid. Now, if we can believe what we read and hear, all that has changed. Drastically. Sills has revitalized company spirits as well as output.
