Innovation is alive and well in the opera world, particularly at smaller and more creative opera companies and festivals. This week, A Tempo spotlights the sixth annual Prototype Festival in New York City, which runs Jan. 7 - 20. This year's Festival presented seven productions, including several world and U.S. premieres. A Tempo host Rachel Katz will speak with two of the Festival's co-directors, Kristin Marting, co-founder and artistic director of the producing organization and arts center HERE, and Jecca Barry, general manager of Beth Morrison Projects, a contemporary opera and music theater company. Tune in Saturday (1/20) at 7 pm.
