Heartbeat Opera (Canceled)

Presented by Mondavi Center, UC Davis at Mondavi Center - Jackson Hall

Note: The Mondavi Center is sad to announce the cancellation of the 20-21 Season of live performances.

Opera is an artistic medium that articulates and confronts human passions with powerful immediacy. This conviction is what drives Heartbeat Opera’s desire to rejuvenate opera and to transform its recognized masterpieces from venerated relics into freshly challenging encounters.

In this stunning adaptation of Beethoven’s Fidelio, a black activist is wrongfully incarcerated.  His wife, Leah, disguises herself to infiltrate the system and free him. But when injustice reigns, one woman’s grit may not be enough to save her love. Fidelio’s live cast of five singers and seven musicians are joined by a prerecorded virtual chorus of more than 100 incarcerated singers from six prison choirs in the United States. The result is “Imaginative, vital and heartbreaking” (The New Yorker).  This daring work pits corruption against courage, hate against hope.
