Heartbeat Opera: Breathing Free
February 10, 2021 • 7:00 pm PST
The Broad Stage presents Heartbeat Opera: Breathing Free. This production was created against the backdrop of George Floyd’s murder, a pandemic ravaging our prison population and the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth. Heartbeat Opera celebrates Black artistry, mingling exhilarating movement with excerpts from Beethoven’s Fidelio, Negro Spirituals, and songs by Black composers and lyricists.
The West Coast Premiere will show on two separate days. The visual album will run for 45 minutes, followed by a panel discussion. On February 10th, the discussion will center on Stories of Transformation, as artists share about their creative and inspiring work with prison populations.
