Hopscotch: An Opera On Wheels
If you live in Los Angeles, you’re no stranger to traffic. But what if while starting and stopping as you navigate the crowded freeway, you could experience an opera? One composer has given Angelenos the opportunity to do exactly that, with a new opera called Hopscotch.
Instead of watching the opera in a traditional theater, this performance happens in the back of limousines, on the banks of the L.A. River, inside the Bradbury Building and in dozens of other locations on the streets of Los Angeles.
If it sounds confusing, then the creators have met their goal. The performance is meant to suspend your sense of space and time, so you are completely immersed in the moment to moment experience of this entirely mobile opera.
