Come see Tod Machover’s robotic opera Death and the Powers that will take place at the MIT Media Lab on Sunday, February 16th, 2014 at 2:30pm. The live show will be presented by The Dallas Opera from February 12th through the 16th. In addition to the live show, there will be 10 first-ever interactive simulcasts during the February 16th matinee. The simulcasts will be presented in the US and Europe, including one in the Media Lab’s sixth-floor lecture hall at 75 Amherst Street. In addition to viewing the live, high definition broadcast feed of the production, you will be able to become immersed further in the performance by using the Powers Live mobile application developed by the Media Lab’s Opera of the Future group. Available for download now for iOS 6/7 and Android 4.0+ devices, Powers Live will allow you to virtually experience visual and sonic aspects of the performance. Live video, audio, and graphical content will be triggered in the app in sync with the performance, and there will be moments when your interaction will, in turn, influence the live show back in Dallas! Register for the event here. More information is available here.
