Heartbeat Opera: Spring Festival


  • Baruch Performing Arts Center 55 Lexington Avenue New York, NY, 10010 United States (map)

From the drama at the core of each piece, Heartbeat Opera grows vivid theatrical worlds through revelatory adaptations, radical rearrangements, and ingenious design. This past season, we created a “radically rethought take” on Puccini’s Butterfly, and a “boldly conceived contemporary interpretation” of Bizet’s Carmen (NYTimes). For our fourth festival, I will be music directing one of two full productions at the Baruch Perfmorming Arts Center, directed by Ethan Heard and Louisa Proske, with new arrangements by Daniel Schlosberg.
