ALAN – opera in seven scenes
“This is only a foretaste of what is to come, and only the shadow of what i going to be…” Alan Turing.
The Alan Turing Opera Project is an interdisciplinary opera initiative created by performing artist Albert Montanez. This project involves opera, theater and technological elements to portrait the life and death of LGBTQ icon and founding father of computer sciences and artificial intelligence, Alan Turing. Alan’s inspirational life was the artistic source for the creation of this new opera work. The one-hour chamber opera is a monologue that narrates the last hour in Alan’s life. It is a life journey of discovery, love, pain and hidden secrets.
The production was part of the festival Stolt Scenkonst during World Pride in Malmö August 18, 2020.
The Film Production is made in collaboration between Albert Montañez, Kent Olofsson, Musik i Syd, Palladium Malmö, Dansstationen och CCS Studios.
