TO WATCH

SERIES PREMIERE Extreme Guide to Parenting, 9:30 p.m., Bravo The Adlers follow an "eco-kosher, shamanistic" style of child-rearing, emphasizing an all-natural approach. Not sure what that means, but it sounds more suitable to cooking a chicken than raising a kid.

  1. Seasoned cast scores an extra-base hit for St. Petersburg Opera with 'Faust'

    Stage

    TAMPA — Charles Gounod's Faust sets the table early. The world-weary philosopher immortalized in a dramatic poem by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe is in his study, lamenting his state of affairs. He's willing to give away everything he has to be young again, even his soul.
