Interactive show The lowdown -- Is the Internet our new town hall? That's one of the questions posed by Demotic, an interactive, partly improvised, multimedia one-person show opening a four-performance engagement at the Theatre Project tonight. The show stars Tracey A. Leigh and also incorporates live music and such technological features as voice synthesis and chat rooms. The American identity, stereotypes and political corruption are among issues tackled in this work, a co-creation by two university professors -- Robert Allen, a theater movement specialist at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and Antoinette LaFarge, an associate professor of digital media at the University of California, Irvine.

Those lucky enough to have tickets for this weekend's Annapolis Opera performances of Puccini's Madama Butterfly are in for a musical treat, based on a recent rehearsal. Conductor and artistic director Ronald J. Gretz guided a cast of gifted singers Saturday on the third floor of Asbury Methodist Church on West Street. The utilitarian setting was transformed by the energy that Gretz and the singers generated, which in turn inspired the actors to reach opening-night form. Soprano Yali-Marie Williams, who was acclaimed by Annapolis Opera audiences and critics two years ago for her Violetta in Verdi's La Traviata, seemed to become Puccini's tragic Cio-Cio San - Madama Butterfly - singing "Amore Mio" (My Love)

The Naval Academy's Distinguished Artists Series continued its gem of a season Monday evening with the fourth event on its schedule, the annual London City Opera performance at Alumni Hall. London City Opera is a touring company that traveled to Annapolis and 70 other U.S. cities last season with its Merry Widow. This season marks the opera's fifth North American tour of Puccini's Madame Butterfly. Having always enjoyed the annual visits, and having heard Puccini's masterpiece at least a dozen times, I found the latest production to have an intimate charm.

Superb singing and acting created high musical drama in the Annapolis Opera's production last weekend of Giacomo Puccini's Madama Butterfly. The performances marked the return of 28-year-old soprano Yali-Marie Williams, a product of Juilliard School and Curtis Institute who debuted at the Annapolis Opera two years ago as Violetta in Verdi's La Traviata. Last weekend, she assumed the more demanding Butterfly role. Williams' lovely voice took on the coloration of an innocent 15-year-old bride in her entrance "Ancora un passa via" (one more step)

One of the great spintos of our time, Diana Soviero is enormously affecting in the title role of Giacomo Puccini's "Madama Butterfly," the Baltimore Opera's second production of the season, which runs through Sunday at the Lyric Opera House.However, the production goes out of its way to make Lt. B. F. Pinkerton, who seduces and abandons the trusting Japanese geisha, into a very ugly American indeed.Granted, Pinkerton is a cad. But he also must have enough boyish charm to justify Butterfly's single-minded and tragic loyalty.

"The Napoleon of Crime: The Life and Times of Adam Worth, Master Thief," by Ben Macintyre. Farrar, Straus and Giroux. 304 pages. $24.According to Army records, Adam Worth died of wounds suffered in the Second Battle of Bull Run. Then he re-enlisted.Faking his own death was Worth's first successful scam, and it earned him a re-enlistment bonus. Easy enough, so he deserted and did it again, and again, always acting out of "avarice rather than cowardice." Finally, he switched sides and got $30 for surrendering to the Confederates.
