Death and the Powers is a new high-tech opera created by the MIT Media Lab and the American Repertory Theatre. Composed by Tod Machover and directed by Diane Paulus, the show uses many new custom technologies and display elements. Sosolimited designed the 4 large LED walls used to embody the digitized spirit of Simon Powers, the main character who downloads himself into 'The System'. Oh yeah, and there's robots onstage. The opera debuted in Monaco on September 25, and comes to Boston at the Majestic Theatre in March 2011. The pictures are courtesy of Jonathan Williams, Jess Kim, and Matt Checkowski.
