Produced by Infinite Opera
Wednesday 8th: 20:40 – 21.35 2018
Entanglement! An Entropic Tale is a cosmic dissemination opera that describes the mysteries of our universe (and of many others) with the distinctive sense of humour that only a nihilist character such as Entropy can have. At the same time, the impossible love story of an electron and a positron, who are stuck in a quantum quandary about their possibilities, arises during the unstoppable – and chaotic – destruction.
