A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

The Secret Sauce

Heartbeat Opera / New York / Music

From its first embryonic stirrings, Heartbeat Opera was destined to be different, and so it has proved to be. Get up close and personal with the key players in seven Zoom soirées, each unique. Learn how they boil down a three-hour warhorse to a 90-minute reduction and give all-acoustic orchestras of symphonic proportions makeovers as tight, fizzy combos that include synthesizers. Oh, and lest we forget, they promise to address the problem of “racist clichés that are lodged inside operatic traditions.” Get that right, guys, before it’s Bye, Bye, Butterfly! Heave Ho, Otell-Oh! —M.G.
