Now in its third season, founded by four graduates of the Yale School of Drama and Yale School of Music, Heartbeat Opera is a company intent upon re-imagining opera in intimate spaces for a new generation. Employing a minimalism that allows the emotional integrity of the music to shine through, Heartbeat’s radical, visceral productions transform works of the operatic canon through visionary adaptations, new arrangements for chamber ensembles, and intimate productions that put the singers and the instrumentalists at the center of the work. Heartbeat distills operas to their powerful essence, and cultivates new audiences for the art form.
