Stargazing at the Opera

From NPR:

The Hayden Planetarium in New York takes opera to the moon with a new production of Il Mondo Della Luna, a comic opera about the moon written by Joseph Haydn in 1777. The performance blends traditional opera with laser and light technology provided by the planetarium.

Diane Paulus and Philip Bussmann talk about merging cosmos footage with music, how science can enhance the arts and the future of technology and theater.

Here more about the theatrical process on NPR’s Science Friday.
