THE INDUSTRY launches in Los Angeles: Veronika Krausas’ Event Review

18 Mar


On Wednesday night (March 16, 2011)  THE INDUSTRY held a launch event at the fabulous Royal/T Café in Culver City.  Over 300 people came out to celebrate!  Excerpts from Anne LeBaron’s opera Crescent City were highlighted amidst wine and chocolates and a very electrifying vibe.

THE INDUSTRY aims to be a bridge between the visual arts and musical worlds here in LA.  They’ll present new and experimental productions that merge music, visual arts, and performance in order to expand the traditional definition of opera and create a new paradigm for interdisciplinary collaboration.  It’s an exciting time to be in LA and the artistic director and founder Yuval Sharon said in his opening remarks:

I’m excited about the audience in Los Angeles, as well as building the audience here for boundary-breaking work… LA’s rich cultural heritage of innovative music is the foundational inspiration for The Industry.

We’re all really invigorated by the reception for this new venture in our wonderfully creative city.  Their inaugural production of Crescent City will be in the Spring of 2012.  Stay tuned for more news.
