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.
