Later this month, the Opera of the Future Group at the MIT Media Lab will premiere Death and the Powers, an opera more than 10 years in the making. Featuring life-sized singing robots and a musical chandelier, the opera could redefine how technology can enhance live performance and help reestablish opera’s spirit of innovation.
Tod Machover, composer, MIT Media Lab Professor, and honorary patron of the project, is hoping the performance will allow the audience and performers to connect on another level. A personal level.
I tend to think traditional operas already provide a deep connection between the performer and the audience. It just depends on your interpretation of the performance and how it moves you. Everyone is different.
What's your take on this? Would you attend a robotic opera?
