Coincidentally, just last night I attended a show, and while I was backstage I got into a very long conversation with visual a artist who focuses on Glassblowing. After scoping over several topics we eventually began speaking about the my background in opera and classical music. Verbatim I stated: "I've seen many artist who struggle to cross-over from classical to more commercial music." And I can't say that was a problem for the curators here while watching this performance.
For about 1 hour and 20 minutes, there is a gorgeous amalgamation of Opera, Jazz, and Electronic music. There isn't a beat missed between transitions either. That feat was almost as impressive as the music itself. There isn't a time where you become bored or auditorily stagnant. Whether it be the indelible marks of Mozart, or the smooth and sexy remix of Black Earth, the sounds were beyond enjoyable.
