Artbound presents a one hour special focused on the avant-garde opera, “Invisible Cities.” Produced by The Industry, L.A.’s experimental opera company, in partnership with the L.A. Dance Project, “Invisible Cities” depicts the meeting between emperor Kublai Khan at the end of his life with the explorer Marco Polo, as told in Italo Calvino’s fantastical book. An innovative production staged in the iconic Union Station, the opera utilizes wireless technology provided by Sennheiser, offering audience members headphones to hear the opera amid the normal “hustle and bustle” of the train station’s everyday life. “Invisible Cities” is composed and adapted by Christopher Cerrone, directed by The Industry’s founder and artistic director Yuval Sharon, with choreography by Danielle Agami.
