Echo and Narcissus

Main Stage
​From the myth of Echo and Narcissus, which first outlined the concept of media, to the digital 21st century. Undertaking the roles of composer and librettist and inspired by these two mythological figures, live coding presents a digital opera addressing contemporary themes.
Ovid's tale of Narcissus, who is transfixed by his own reflection, and Echo, who is condemned to wander disembodied through eternity, is staged by Medea Electronique using live coding and code poetry: the code is written in real time and generates the opera's sound as well as its libretto. Transcribing the properties of opera into its digital equivalents, the libretto is sung by live performers.
