This robot opera is a new work that follows closely to the major plot points of a show like Little Shop of Horrors. A computer is created by the lead antagonist to kill his crush's lover in order to win her over. Everything goes wrong in the end when the computer gains sentience and then goes to take over the world.

Utilizing Adobe Character Animator and the opera singer, we were able to take a real-time animated character image and place it onstage as a digital character. This was then displayed on a computer monitor strapped to a performer onstage acting out the motions.
