Through the experience of several families consisting of both children and adults with food allergies, this program clarifies the misinformation people commonly have about food allergies.

Several medical professionals such as Dr. Scott Sicherer of the Jaffe Food Allergy Institute and doctors Harvey Leo and Ben Song of the Allergy & Immunology Associates of Ann Arbor discuss the possible causes of food allergies and its impact on the parents, the allergic child, and siblings. Other topics include the daily routine of an allergic individual; the time and energy that goes into preparing to eat out, going to the park, visiting family and friends, and addressing the lack of understanding and education of people who are unaware of the danger of this condition. Supports groups include founder Melissa Dalton, of COFAF (Circle of Food Allergic Families) and Terry Furlong, co-founder of FAAN (Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network), the largest advocacy organization for food allergies in the world. The various coping challenges and strategies--medical, emotional and social-are addressed as are the positive insights people have gained from learning to effectively live with food allergies on a daily basis.

La Cenerentola (1983)
Abbado's Cenerentola is set in a modern, realistic time. Quoting the director's own words, the "emptiness of the stage leaves room for creativity, as the characters keep on changing and disguising their true identity. I have stuck to Rossini's original notes while neglecting all the legends linked to the character of Cinderella". We all know that Rossini and librettist Jacopo Ferretti in fact had gone a long way from Perrault's fairy tale.
In the rather empty, bare stage the few scenographic elements strike the attention: the colorful costumes, the two giant chandeliers, the 1970's kitchen.
The singers are young, talented and with very good acting skills.
Evelino Pidò conducts with a light, energetic touch that well suit the entire production.
