In November 2015 Los Angeles was struck by Hopscotch, a large-scale, site-specific mobile opera performance produced by experimental opera company The Industry. A one-of-a-kind experience for audience and crew alike, Hopscotch consisted of 24 simultaneously performed scenes which took place inside 18 limousines and in various locations across downtown Los Angeles. The project's lead A/V Technician, Edward Carlson, talks about the many audio challenges faced while building a show of this scale and complexity. Between fighting frequencies in downtown, lugging antennas to the roof of an apartment building, and live streaming all of it to the audience's headphones in a central hub, it's no understatement that Hopscotch was a tremendous feat.
