ABOUT INVISIBLE CITIES

Hailed

by The Hollywood Reporter as a "signal cultural event" and "a delicate

and beautiful opera" by The Los Angeles Times, Invisible Cities was

a joint production by The Industry and L.A. Dance Project which

premiered at Los Angeles' historic Union Station and performed to sold-out

audiences during its run in October and early November 2013. Based on Italo

Calvino's fantastical novel, the opera was composed and adapted by Christopher

Cerrone, conceived and directed by The Industry's founder and artistic director

Yuval Sharon, with choreography by Danielle Agami. The production utilized

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.
