By David Salazar

Catapult Opera has announced the streaming of “The Glitch,” the first of a series of micro video-opera commissions.

“The Glitch” is a new work by composer Nico Muhly and librettist Greg Pierce that stars Krysty Swann, Lester Lynch, and Adam Tendler. The video-opera is directed by Marcus Shields.

“I am extremely proud of The Glitch. It proves that one does not need a huge, lavish production to create meaningful opera: just beautiful music and characters with whom one can empathize,” states conductor and company artistic director Neal Goren in a press statement. “The goal of the series of commissions is to spark conversation about what opera can be in today’s world and influence its development as an art form for our time and the future.”

Audiences can check out “The Glitch” for free right now on Catapult Opera’s official website.
