Nessun Dorma

   Dramatic Arts Science

When dealing with the question of how human beings will coexist with artificial intelligence (AI) and robots in the future, theatre offers a particularly appropriate field for experimentation on which performers can literally play through emotions, yearnings and fears.

In “Nessun Dorma” the genre of opera enters uncharted territory: based on complex algorithms and self-learning systems, a machine composes operatic arias rendered by human interpreters.

Consisting partly of household appliances, two robots perform on stage, loving and suffering as befits a dramatic opera story. The interaction of the two artificial beings, driven by a subliminal longing for death, combines philosophical reflection of emotions and digital science with the opera genre that tells of human emotions.
