R.U.R. A Torrent of Light

A spectacular new opera

Set in the offices of an A.I. software company in the near future, when human-like robots are part of everyday life, R.U.R. A Torrent of Light asks: are we ready to create an intelligence far beyond our own?

This stunning new opera blends dance, video projection, an orchestra of over 100 instruments, and unique costumes and props created with OCAD University’s Social Body Lab team, to create an immersive and unforgettable operatic science-fiction experience.

Composed by Nicole Lizée, libretto by Nicolas Billon.

A Tapestry Opera and OCAD University partnership.
