The Industry, Yuval Sharon’s visionary opera company, has announced their next project. Hopscotch will be a mobile opera that takes place simultaneously in 18 cars driving around LA, with audiences either riding along or watching from a central hub. Six composers are involved, and, importantly, they’re in the running for a $100,000 grant.
