The Good Fight
By Lauren Baccus

The story of the fight against breast cancer is not only one of loss, but also of courage, survival and healing. To honor the women who have faced one of the deadliest diseases in this country with strength and grace, jewelry designer Mauri Pioppo has joined creative forces with survivor Sheryl Crow to aid in the research of breast cancer. Originally teaming up to produce a talisman necklace for Crow herself, the duo designed the piece to radiate energy and healing. With this collaboration, Pioppo continues to extend her talent to the causes that affect our lives in the most intimate ways.

Replicas are available at select retailers for $420 of which 50% go directly to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Time Out New York and the City Opera join forces to give you an education in opera, and as it turns out, the art form is a lot more than fortissimo fat ladies. Before several performances of the City Opera’s fall season, join the experts for a 45-minute discussion of various aspects of Opera.

The first session will be held on Tuesday, October 3rd, and will outline the different styles and techniques of classical voice. Sandra Piques Eddy, one of the City Opera’s leading ladies, will explain what how mere mortals come to have such a powerful vocal presence. A performance of Bizet’s Carmen will follow. Think you can out-sing the Toreador?

Tickets for the sessions are $10 each, $8 for subscribers to the CO, and $5 for students. The price for the whole series (which includes the opera, lecture, reception and free copy of A Rough Guide to Opera) is $133-450. This spans the entire 2006-2007 season.

For more information or a schedule of events, call (212) 870-5643.

To order the TONY Intro to Opera Series or to purchase individual lecture tickets, call (212) 496-0600.
