Who said good ideas propagate? Well, it's true. In 1848, Alexandre Dumas wrote La Dame aux camelias. Four years later, he turned the popular novel into the play that would inspire Verdi's beloved opera La Traviata. In 1936, along came film director George Cukor, whose brilliant notion it was to have Greta Garbo star in Camille, another reinterpretation of the Dumas love story. Now, another good idea: To preview its forthcoming production of La Traviata, opening Nov. 9, the Pennsylvania Opera Theater (TPOT)

The French import Every Other Weekend gently addresses the emotional violence of that divorce byproduct called "visitation," by which the children of an ex-couple are batted between parents like shuttlecocks across a net of thorns. As directed by actress-turned-filmmaker Nicole Garcia, this memorable, unsentimental document of the splitsville era focuses on the noncustodial parent, in this case the mother. Sullenly charismatic, as is the Gallic way, Nathalie Baye plays the unreliable mother in what has to be the best portrait of maternal ambivalence since Judy Davis essayed High Tide.

The French regard Alfred de Musset as one of their great playwrights, but productions of his plays in the United States are rare. The McCarter Theater Company's presentation of Musset's Don't Trifle With Love in Princeton, N.J., is the start of an attempt to correct the situation. Artistic director Nagle Jackson has translated the 19th-century play gracefully and staged it with a conscientious sense of the difficulties it presents. They are formidable problems. Dealing with the confusions of young love, the play behaves for most of the way like a comedy, but ends tragically.

Lean, mean and out for blood, Daniel Craig makes his second appearance as James Bond in Quantum of Solace . It's a title that hardly makes sense - if I've got my Webster's Dictionary right, it translates to measurable amount of the alleviation of grief . But who knows, maybe it'll become a generational catchphrase. Or at least it's something you'd say to a Starbucks barrista: I'll have a venti latte with a quantum of solace, thanks. A sequel to Casino Royale (the action starts almost immediately where the last one ended)

With their coxswains bellowing encouragement, crews shoot the two eight- oared shells along the river and then collapse in panting exhaustion as the they cross the finish line. The applause from the spectators is politely restrained. It's only an event in a regatta, but, as one miffed observer muses, "We shouldn't give them ideas of victory. " The race takes place in French colonial Indochina in 1930, and the victors are a motley native crew that has just bested a favored team of French Navy cadets.

In the popular media, Philadelphia-based cultural critic Camille Paglia often is portrayed as a disruptive, antiauthoritarian feminist, a veritable banshee ripping apart all that's good, true, and beautiful. Her first book, after all, had the s-word in its title - Sexual Personae: Art and Decadence From Nefertiti to Emily Dickinson , which seemed to argue that all our treasured myths and art works were the expression of male anxiety over women's power to reproduce. Well, so much for media stereotypes.

I JUST GOT an early birthday present. Last Tuesday, while perusing the latest edition of Philadelphia Magazine , I happened upon a list of the "31 People We Wish Would Just Shut Up. " The "we" in question were the editors, of course. And there, at No. 10, was yours truly. My first reaction was: Really? Out of all the annoying people in this city, I made the final cut?

Camille Cates Barnett will get nearly $50,000 annually from the city pension fund for the rest of her life after June 30, when she leaves her post as Philadelphia's managing director after two years, five months, and 24 days. On the same day that a City Council committee moved to close the loophole that allows short-time employees such as Barnett to buy credit in the city's pension fund based on public service elsewhere, the Board of Pensions and Retirement revealed that Barnett had done just that.

Managing Director Camille Barnett - who came to the city government weighed down by grief and never took on a strong public role like some of her predecessors - yesterday announced her resignation. Rumors of Barnett's departure had echoed through City Hall for weeks. During a tearful news conference, Barnett said the decision to leave was her own, saying that she needed time to rebuild her life. Her last day is June 30. "I first want to tell you I really appreciate what you have done to support me in the last two years," said Barnett, who has served since Mayor Nutter took office.

Through closed doors yesterday, he could be heard scolding fellow House Democrats as they caucused at the Capitol for the first time on details of a tentative budget deal their leaders had agreed to 11 days earlier. George stormed out of the meeting in the afternoon and let his colleagues have it again when a reporter asked him to recap what he had just said in private.

CAMILLE Barnett doesn't own a hazmat suit. She doesn't ride on trash trucks, stop at fires, manage traffic disasters or hold news conferences, as previous Philadelphia managing directors have. But Barnett says that behind the scenes she is running things in her own way. "How it works is, things that need to be done, get done," Barnett said. Since joining the administration 18 months ago, Barnett - who held top city jobs in Austin, Texas, and in Washington, D.C. - has kept a low profile.
