Beauty & 7 Beasts

by The Opera Story

Beauty and 7 Beasts is  a contemporary opera produced by The Opera Story. It brings a multi-media experience to the audiences. 

Beauty starts to date with those extreme characters which are inspired by the 7 sins via the dating app Magic Mirror. Beast is the match maker/ guide of the app and They build up the relationship through the journey. 

Apart from the two performers in space, other characters are pre-recorded videos. The video contents jump between 3 screens to consolidate the smart house concept. We try to simulate that the orb can detect the face and the position of Beauty.
