Ooppera Skaala’s Great Conspiracy The Opera premiered May 2011. The production has included media production research between Ooppera Skaala, Aalto University’s Department of Media Technology and Crucible Studio. Great Conspiracy is a new breed of audiovisual performance best described by the term multimedia opera. The work combines opera singing and electroacoustic music with surround sound and research in motion detection technologies, adaptive stage design and associative narrative. The storyline moves simultaneously along multiple time axes, posing tough questions about who really benefits from conspiracy theories and how governments can actively exploit them to control their citizens in an atmosphere of fear.
