An artificial intelligence-infused opera composed by Luc Steels & Oscar Villaroya, based on the legend of Faust, with a twenty-first century twist. A classical music piece delivering a contemporary take on the blurred boundaries of a digitized world.

After a successful avant-premiere in la Monnaie in September, the first public performance will take place at the and& festival in Leuven on 3 May.
