The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage
The MIT Center for Art, Science, and Technology (CAST), MIT Music and Theatre Arts, and Guerilla Opera present the world premiere of The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage, a comedic new opera that features the true-life unsung inventors of the first computer “fighting crime” in alternative universes. The world premiere chamber opera features music composed by Elena Ruehr, libretto by Royce Vavrek, is adapted from the graphic novel by Sydney Padua, and with stage direction by Giselle Ty.
In addition to the scheduled performance on Saturday, February 4, CAST and Guerilla Opera welcome members of the blind and visually impaired community to experience a tactile tour of The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage production at 2:00 pm directly preceding the 3:00 pm matinee performance. All audiences are also welcome to stay for a post-show discussion directly following that performance.
