PINE MOUNTAIN MUSIC FESTIVAL PRESENTS
THE THRILLING ADVENTURES OF LOVELACE AND BABBAGE
JUNE 16, 2023 5 P.M. AND JUNE 17, 2023 7:30 P.M. | THE ROZSA CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS
'The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage' is a new comic opera by composer Elena Ruehr and librettist Royce Vavrek based on Sydney Padua’s steampunk graphic novel. This opera presents an alternate reality in which Ada Lovelace, a peculiar proto-programmer, and Charles Babbage, unrealized inventor of the computer, build the difference engine, program runaway economic models, battle a scourge of spelling errors and, of course, fight crime! The opera utilizes sounds from the only working difference engine in the world, recorded in Seattle. The clicks and clacks of the machine are morphed into a percussion section and mapped onto a midi marimba so that the sounds are played as part of the opera. Guerilla Opera artists will perform a concert version of this opera for PMMF.
