CRESCENT CITY, a hyperopera
The Industry, a new experimental opera company, brings together over 50 artists from every discipline to create and inhabit the landscape of CRESCENT CITY. Anne LeBaron's raucous, electronica-infused hyperopera, featured twice in New York City Opera's VOX showcase of new American opera, springs to life in an industrial warehouse at Atwater Crossing.
With a hurricane on the move, ghosts fleeing the city and a marauding band of revelers celebrating the end of the world, Crescent City verges on the edge of destruction. Will the voodoo priestess find the one good soul who will save it?
