Culture Connection: Invisible Cities Opera

Art & Music, Articles, Culture Connection, Featured

Last week I had the distinct pleasure of seeing one of the most ingenious pieces of performance I’ve seen in a while. The Industry’s unforgettable opera Invisible Cities left and eerily moving impression on me.  Set in Downtown Los Angeles’ iconic Union Station, Artistic Director Yuval Sharon has created a one of a kind LA experience that rivals ambitious curated work around the globe.

I cannot do this work justice in my description of it so I figured I would give you the next best thing. Below are beautifully filmed segments from KCET’s Artbound.
One segment  is about the composing of an Opera in a space like Union Station  in which the audience and performers are all on headset.

Segment two showcases the beautiful choreography that weaves the opera in and out of Union Station’s crevices.

I do hope you will enjoy this week’s Culture Connection.  And please don’t forget to-
“Make a career of humanity. Commit yourself to the noble struggle for equal rights. You will make a greater person of yourself, a greater nation of your country, and a finer world to live in.”
