Invisible Cities, the Wandering Opera Through Union Station, Is a Welcome Adventure

cerroneBy Christian Hertzog
LA Weekly Blogs

“It is not the voice that commands the story: it is the ear.”

This aphorism appears on the cover of the program to Christopher Cerrone‘s opera Invisible Cities. Yet in the Industry’s fascinating production at Union Station, it is not the ear shaping the story, but rather the eye.

Usually in opera, the blocking and lighting focus the audience’s attention on the characters and actions that the director feels are most important. In Yuval Sharon’s site-specific production, each audience member must choose where in Union Station to observe the opera and what characters or dancers to follow. MORE

The Yale School of Music Concert Series: A Study in Virtuosity

Connecticut Magazine
By Cathy P. Ross

james_conlon,_credit_dan_steinberg_for_la_opera_4It’s hard to describe the excitement you feel when a talented violinist performs a Mozart composition and the result is pure magic. More than 200 years after his death, Mozart still packs the house. This was apparent when we attended “Marriner Conducts Mozart” at Yale University’s Woolsey Hall several years ago. The renowned conductor and violinist Sir Neville Marriner had spent the previous week working with Yale student ensembles—the Schola Cantorum, Camerata, Philharmonia and Glee Club—and their efforts culminated in a production worthy of Carnegie Hall, right here in New Haven MORE

Longview Daily News
by Leslie Slape

Symposium-Brian-MitchellBrian Mitchell, vocal instructor at Mark Morris High School, said “it’s easy to feel like an island” teaching music when the emphasis in education now is on academics and test scores.

But at a Yale University symposium in June, Mitchell discovered that music teachers around the nation are “dealing with the exact same struggles. It doesn’t matter where we were from or how big our programs were. We were all dealing with pressures (for students) to do other things.” MORE
