About the performance:
Lundh resurrects the forgotten history of the ill-fated computerized opera The Tale of the Big Computer. Started in the late 1960s by a noble-prize winning Swedish physicist, the plan for the world’s first computer opera was eventually abandoned after a cascade of human and technical disasters.

Through meticulous research, Lundh presents the strange but true story of the experimental opera, connecting dots amongst 1960s Sci-Fi, Art, and A.I. from Stockholm to New York.
