Hazleton Standar Speaker, Monday, November 9, 1 987 25 Emotions overflow in 'Napoleon and Josephine' been untrue, he sends word home that he wishes to divorce her. The fun-loving English intercept the letter and print it in their newspapers. In Part 3, Napoleon has returned to France convinced he is "under a curse, like a fragment of rock launched into space." He cheers himself up by making himself emperor, heightening Josephine's worry that he expects an heir. Eventually she helps him pick out a suitable mother for his child. After an unfortunate winter in Russia, Napoleon no longer amuses the French and they allow tourists to send him to Elba, where he dies - no sense in cluttering things up by mentioning his later return and subsequent second exile to the less pleasant Saint Helena. trouble. Pauline only makes hay. Napoleon, meanwhile, can find no joy in conquering Italy because Josephine, confounded by the art of spelling, does not answer his three letters a day. Talleyrand and Barras send Josephine to Italy, fearing the increasingly popular Napoleon will return home in triumph if he doesn't have his honeybunch with him at the front. In Part 2, Josephine has a tryst with Captain Charles, for which they'll both be sorry. She departs for Italy and runs into unpleasant Austrians along the way. Back home again, the maid tells Talleyrand, inaccurately, that Charles and Josephine still have a thing going. Napoleon by this time is in Egypt knee-deep in desert sand and inscrutable prisoners. When he learns Josephine has Show." NBC will also show the spots during other prime-time shows. ... On Tuesday, Tom Snyder makes his first appearance on NBC since his late-night talk show was canceled in 1982. He'll be a guest on "Late Night with David Letterman." Snyder won't get to confront his video-induced ghostly image in the famous "Late Night" prancing fluids fountain, however, since Letterman donated the fascinating device to a staffer's high school alma mater last week. ... Meanwhile, over at CBS they're celebrating the fact that "60 Minutes" has become the first broadcast since "Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In" to be honored with a gold medal by the International Radio and Television Society. Said medal will be awarded at a gala luncheon in March. So much for conquests abroad. Back home in TV-land: ABC's Ted Koppel says his contract negotiations with the network are "going well." ABC News President Roone Arledge had said the popular anchor of "Nightline" might surprise the network by going off to do something other than television. But Koppel said coyly last week that he "wouldn't be surprised" to end up staying at AEC for another contract stint. ... NBC's "Today" show will spend Thanksgiving week in Europe, visiting military installations, including the aircraft carrier Coral Sea off the coast of France Public service announcements about AIDS will reach the biggest audience available on network television when spots, ranging from 10 to 60 seconds, begin airing this week during "The Cosby By KATHRYN BAKER AP Television Writer NEW YORK (AP) - ABC's "Napoleon and Josephine: A Love Story" is a long-winded but often entertaining epic soap opera. The drama, however, is not whether the hot-headed little general will win Italy or Austria, but whether gravity will prevail over Josephine and her pals' skimpy bodices. The miniseries was produced by David Wolper ("Roots," "The Thorn Birds") and airs Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Jacqueline Bisset and Armand Assante are the star-crossed lovers. Stephanie Beacham plays Josephine's floozy best friend. Anthony Perkins is divine in eyeliner as snooty Talleyrand. Patrick Cassidy is attractive Captain Charles, Josephine's dalliance. William Lucking is one of Napoleon's loyal soldiers who, with a series of doomed cohorts he always names Marchand, serves as a kind of Willie and Joe at the front. The overacting in "Napolean and Josephine" is more than any follower of camp could hope for. France is lucky the scenery-chomping Assante left the landscape intact. Bisset plays the same character she always seems to - slightly perplexed and seemingly unaware she's undressed. In Part 1, Josephine Beauhar-nais faces the guillotine, but manages to convince a somewhat sympathetic if lecherous revolutionary guard that she'll trade certain favors for a day's reprieve. Imagine her relief when he informs her on the way to their tryst that Robespierre is deposed and the executions will cease. Instead she trades said favors for accommodations with conniving politician Barras, in whose home young general Napoleon Bonaparte first lays eyes on Josephine, falling immediately in love. They soon marry, he for panting lust, she for convenience. There are mother-in-law troubles right away when Napoleon's mother (Jane Lapotaire) learns her son has married an older woman with two children. Mom dispatches 16-year-old Pauline (lone Skye) to Paris to make Cleveland is eoncertmaster tiffing LARGE PARTIES WELCOME! . . . Select from our Large Variety Dining Menu Plus, Daily Specials.

America s 8 The Philharmonic Society of Northeastern Pennsylvania recently engaged Dennis Cleveland as eoncertmaster of the Northeastern Pennsylvania Philharmonic. Cleveland, who has performed as violinist with the Philharmonic for the past four seasons, is also eoncertmaster and solo violinist for the American Ballet Theatre at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York and on tour. In addition, he is associate eoncertmaster for the Opera Orchestra of New York, the Joffrey Ballet, substitute eoncertmaster for the New Jersey Symphony, and performs with the New York Chamber Symphony. When asked to explain the role of the eoncertmaster, Music Director Hugh Keelan responded, "The eoncertmaster is at once a colleague of the conductor and intermediary between the orchestra and the conductor. He or she advises on technical points of string playing and in many ways makes practical the ideals of the conductor. The eoncertmaster also plays important violin solos and represents the orchestra in ceremonial functions, like the first applause that precedes the tuning of the ensemble." Cleveland was first violinist with the Audubon String Quartet, which was in residence at Marywood College for six years. During his tenure with the group, the Audubon Quartet received four international prizes. Cleveland has performed for Prime Minister Menachem Begin and President Jimmy Carter, and concertized and taught in China. His honors include solo performances for Twyla Tharp's ballet to Bach's Partita at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. Other notable solo performances for the ballet have included television tapings for national and international distribution at the Met of Sir Kenneth MacMillan's "Triad", danced to Prokofiev's Concerto 1 in D, and Anthony Tudor 's "Jardin aux Lillas," danced to Chausson's "Poeme" at the War Memorial Opera in San Francisco. In addition to participating in summer music festivals like the Newport Music Festival and the Grand Teton Music Festival, Cleveland also performed with the Lenape Chamber Ensemble in Bucks County. Cleveland, an Indiana native, studied with Paul Rolland at the University of Illinois during his high school years, and became the youngest member of the Illinois State Department sponsored tour of Latin America. He continued studies with Stuart Canin, Ivan Glamian and Paul Makonowitz, and, as a student of the Juilliard School, soloed with the National Orchestra Association of New York and the Opera Orchestra of New York at the Lincoln Center Library.
