Sometimes when you meet a world-renowned artist, you feel an energy in the room that constantly reminds you of their fame. This is neither a good nor a bad thing – it just has you in a state of awe.

I originally found out about The Industry, a truly amazing experimental opera company here in Los Angeles, through my friend Elizabeth Cline, who is the executive director. I think it’s phenomenal how The Industry has re-approached an art form that has gotten extremely classicized (and perhaps marginalized), and I think the company is unbelievably successful at transforming how people view opera.
