Death and the Powers Workshop
October 2, 2009

A couple of weeks ago we had an amazing workshop presentation of an opera in progress, Death and the Powers. It has a libretto by Robert Pinsky, music by MIT Media Lab composer Todd Machover, and our very own Diane Paulus is at its helm. The workshop ended in a presentation with projections that gave the audience a pretty good idea of what this extraordinary robot opera is going to look like. I took some photos of the cast and presentation; here is a sampling. It is hoped to be part of our 2010-11 season.
