Miranda: A Steam Punk VR Experience is a cutting edge collaboration between LUMA, Tri-Cities Opera, Enhance VR and Opera Omaha that re-imagines world-class theater for a socially distanced age.
LUMA, the country’s premier festival for art, technology and narrative will headline its 2020 edition with this first-of-its-kind event, featuring live motion-capture performance during every showtime. Get ready to immerse yourself in the real time interactive narrative with a VR headset, on your PC, or via YouTube on any mobile device this September.
With a story and score by groundbreaking composer Kamala Sankaram, Miranda transports us to a dystopian future where growing class disparities have reached epic proportions and our criminal justice system serves only as a parody of what it once was. A wealthy woman has died under mysterious circumstances and three suspects’ lives are on the line. They’ll testify in aria for the chance at freedom. The online audience will serve as judge and jury–but can they even accept their own role at face value? Or has the game been rigged from the start?
