Entanglement! An Entropic Tale
Produced by Infinite Opera
Daniel Blanco Albert Composer
Roxanne Korda Librettist
Deeply connected, Electron and Positron long to touch but doing so would mean their annihilation. Guided by the nihilistic and reckless Entropy, their search for identity and meaning leads to black holes, parallel universes, encounters with the laws of physics – and ultimately the end of the universe as we know it. Based on current concepts from particle physics, Entanglement! An Entropic Tale is a cosmic exploration of life and death, creation and destruction, and the importance of living life in the present.
Please join us before the performance at 7pm for an introductory presentation by Professor Gerardo Adesso, School of Mathematical Sciences, University of Nottingham. The performance will also be followed by a Q&A panel session with Professor Gerardo Adesso (School of Mathematical Sciences), Professor Mark Fromhold (Faculty of Science), Ms Roxanne Korda (Infinite Opera), Mr Daniel Blanco Albert (Infinite Opera) plus moderator, Timothy Rushby (Lakeside Arts).
2 hours including interval
Suitable for ages 12+
The Complete Cosmicomics by Italo Calvino, which explores different ways of representing concepts and theories from physics, provided inspiration for the opera. Why not read the book to help you enjoy the show even more? Available here.
