In our oh-so-enlightened times, the concept that life means being caught up in a hideous, inexorable whirl of events beyond all reason and control might not get a lot of takers. But this notion struck the imagination of many people in centuries past, and struck hard. This helps account for quite a few operas with plots propelled almost entirely by cruel bursts of fate. There is no finer example of this type than Verdi's La forza del destino. If you go La forza del destino will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, 8:15 p.m. Friday, and 3 p.m. Sunday at Lyric Opera House, 110 W. Mount Royal Ave. $46 to $132, 410-727-6000, baltimoreopera.

After fixing up his new Bethany Beach house this summer, David Destino was eager to relax with his family there over the Labor Day weekend. But first the Ellicott City man had to navigate one of the Eastern Shore's more treacherous routes, a rural road that authorities say is poorly equipped to handle heavy holiday traffic. There on eastbound Route 404, a partially divided two-lane highway, a dump truck rear-ended the 2003 Ford Explorer that Destino was driving Friday afternoon, Maryland State Police said.

A father and son were killed yesterday afternoon on the Eastern Shore after a dump truck rear-ended their vehicle, state police said yesterday. The accident in Queen Anne's County, near the Talbot County border, happened about 1:40 p.m. on eastbound Route 404, a partially divided highway that has long been considered one of the Shore's most dangerous roads. The truck was traveling east in Queen Anne's near Pinder Road when the driver failed to stop at a traffic backup, hitting several stopped cars, said State Police Cpl. Art Lohman.

The Rosa Ponselle Foundation has announced that a series of May concerts and Masses will celebrate the life of Rosa Ponselle, the Metropolitan Opera diva who died 20 years ago this month. At 11:30 a.m. tomorrow at St. Charles Borromeo Roman Catholic Church in Pikesville, a memorial Mass will be offered for Ponselle, whom opera star Luciano Pavarotti called "the Queen of Queens in all of singing." It was in this plain Victorian-era church that Ponselle, who lived in the nearby Greenspring Valley for 40 years, celebrated her faith and enthusiastically joined with the rest of the parishioners in the singing of hymns, her voice soaring above the others.

Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky's Pathetique Symphony is a valedictory work par excellence. The last of the great Russian composer's six symphonies, it summoned up the deepest emotions Tchaikovsky had to offer. Ringing, heroic statements conclude Symphonies 4 and 5, but Pathetique's ending is wreathed in sadness, resignation, and a sense of submission to one's fate. Tchaikovsky, who died days after the work's premiere, felt Pathetique's power firsthand, referring to it as his most beloved musical offspring, and expressing proprietary pride in the beautiful sounds his emotional odyssey had inspired.

NEW YORK -- Forget the crazy opera plots. Simply putting on an opera is melodrama enough, given sensitive vocal cords, illnesses, jet-age scheduling and difficult scores.The Metropolitan Opera staged a performance of "I Puritani" (the Puritans) Jan. 22 with a backstage scenario not envisioned by Italian composer Vincenzo Bellini and with a rare public explanation by the man who schedules the company's singers.The "Puritani" story began last fall: On Oct. 30, the Met announced that its winter production of Verdi's "La Forza del Destino" (The Force of Destiny)

Tuesday night at the Lyric Theatre, during a piano rehearsal of the Baltimore Opera's forthcoming production of ''L'Elixir d'Amore'' (''The Elixir of Love''), a very ordinary looking older man with a figure that attested to many good meals removed the coat slung over his shoulders, walked confidently on stage, opened his mouth and filled the auditorium with golden sound.I might as well start with one fact: Carlo Bergonzi, one of the handful of great operatic tenors of our time, was never a glamorous fellow.
