About the Event
Tod Machover’s first opera, VALIS, broke new ground and garnered rave reviews when it premiered in 1987, called “a work of bold imagination, strongly individual personality, and undeniable emotional impact” (Musical America) and “one of the brightest and most intelligent of new American operas” (The New Yorker). This brand-new production will give audiences the first opportunity in almost 30 years to experience a live performance of this seminal work, which is perhaps even more relevant today—in a world coming to grips with “deep fakes” and the rapid development of AI technology—than when it was first presented.
Co-presented by MIT Media Lab / MIT Theater Arts / Opera Of The Future.
Directed by Jay Scheib, and featuring Davóne Tines and Timur Bekbosunov, David Cushing, Maggie Finnegan, Rose Hegele, Anaïs Reno; Kristin Young, with Julia Carey (piano/keyboard) and Maria Finkelheimer (percussions).
