The Perot Museum will host a simulcast of the final performance of Dallas Opera's Death and the Powers, playing at Winspear Opera House.
Science fiction and poignant family drama combine in Death and the Powers, one of the most stunning, cutting-edge operas of the 21st century. This visually spectacular robot pageant by MIT Media Lab’s Tod Machover tells the story of a terminally ill billionaire, sung by Robert Orth, who downloads his consciousness into “the System” and proceeds to use all his powers to persuade his loved ones to join him there. Without bodies, without the possibility of touch, sex, suffering, and death — are we still genuinely human?
The simulcast is technically sold out, but the museum will release any empty seats to those in the stand-by line starting at 1:15 pm.
