SOH10 the Opera

Tells the story of an impassioned female scientist who is experimenting with artificial intelligence.

It is a physical and mental experience where Alex Vermeulen and David Shea transform the rich “opera” tradition into a contemporary form with a mix of traditional Eastern and Western opera influences and popular music genres by applying live-edited video and music sample techniques developed especially for the opera.

The interchange between live performance, video images and a virtual orchestra will immerse you in a truly unique visual trip.

Holland Festival @ Docklands

Show dates were 5, 6, 7, 25, 26, 27 & 28 of June 2003 — Start time at 9.00 pm
