In 1816, fascinated by the technological and scientific advances of her time, Mary Shelley wrote the very first science fiction novel, in which an artificially created being strives to do good, but nonetheless does evil and is, as a result, rejected by its maker. Two hundred years after its publication, the US composer Mark Grey has gone back to the original story for his first full-length opera. Together with the director Àlex Ollé (La Fura dels Baus), in this 21st-century interpretation he warns of the growing gulf between our capacity to invent and our inability to comprehend. An eagerly awaited world premiere, with and about advanced technology.
