World Premiere: THE_OPER&
by John Supko & Bill Seaman
Directed by Jim Findlay
Performed by Lorelei Ensemble

s technology making or breaking our world? That question is central to THE_OPER&, a bold new opera to be developed and premiered at Duke University that uses the high drama framework of opera and advanced technology to explore ideas of apocalypse, renewal, and survival in the modern age. During each performance, a computer system preloaded with video, sound, and poetic text fragments generates an original world, specific to the room and audience.
