Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Founded by Artistic Director Yuval Sharon, The Industry burst onto the creative scene with the 2012 premiere of CRESCENT CITY, a large-scale, interdisciplinary opera by Anne LeBaron and Douglas Kearney. Opening to rave reviews, the production’s striking intersection of visual artistry and musical ingenuity firmly established The Industry as an innovative force in American - and Los Angeles opera.
The Industry garnered international recognition for Invisible Cities, an operatic adaption of Italo Calvino’s novel, composed by Christopher Cerrone. Staged in the spectacular public areas of Los Angeles Union Station, the opera was produced for wireless headphones and marked significant collaborations with L.A. Dance Project and Sennheiser.
Then The Industry established its own label, The Industry Records, for presenting high-quality recordings of new experimental American opera. The first release was Invisible Cities by Christopher Cerrone, in November 2014, with reviews from New York Times, Boston Globe and Los Angeles Times. The Industry Records will release The Edge of Foreverby Los Angeles-based composer Lewis Pesacov in Spring 2015.
Next up is HOPSCOTCH, an opera happening in multiple cars zig-zagging Los Angeles, composed by six LA-based composers. It’s The Industry’s biggest adventure yet!
