Patterns of Inheritance, Internet Opera

Come see Patterns of Inheritance, a “modern opera about the internet”, by Ben Bernstein ’10. This sounds ridiculously intriguing:

The entire libretto is composed of chopped up blog posts and Wikipedia articles, and the orchestrations are fragments as well. Using movement and a cast of five singers and eight instrumentalists, and six dancers, the opera attempts to paint a picture of the information we process, distribute, and inherit through the internet.

Basically, just imagine the lovechild of Phillip Glass and Gawker…a digital dream. You have 4 chances to catch the free show this Homecoming Weekend, so don’t miss out!
