The opera explores Android lovers, dominatrix culture, and the final frontier: multiple partners. The piece is a playful three-act performance that explores the future of love, sex, and need with a clever balance of humor and drama. Each aptly named act (The Companion, Safe Word, and Masquerade) introduces the audience to a collision of contemporary characters who meet at the intersection of power and desire to reveal the true longings of the human heart.
The work was originally premiered at the Nashville Opera with the same hunky trio.
You can still donate to their Kickstarter campaign to fund a recording of the opera.
