The BRAIN OPERA is an interactive, musical journey into your mind, to be presented simultaneously in physical and cyber space!

Created by acclaimed composer Tod Machover and his team at the M.I.T. Media Laboratory, the BRAIN OPERA is a first-of-its-kind musical experience that will include contributions from both on-line participants and live audiences. It will debut with 100 free performances at Lincoln Center in New York City, July 23-August 3, 1996.
