Science Fair: An Opera with Experiments Opens in NYC

Friend of the Lab Hai-Ting Chinn (you might know her from that time she sang the ingredients of a Twinkie on the Wendy Williams Show) has a big announcement: after years of work and countless collaborations, her two-woman show Science Fair: An Opera with Experiments is opening in New York City.

The production calls on the words of well known scientists and writers in its libretto, includes slideshows of scientific concepts illustrated by Maki Naro, and intertwines each piece with live science demonstrations. Dubbed “an opera singer’s love song to science,” it’s the exact marriage of art and science that we here at Mad Art Lab go crazy for.

In addition to support from HERE Arts Center and a grant from the Matisse Foundation, the production is being funded via Kickstarter. You can still pitch in for a few more days!

If you’re in NYC, you also have the chance to see it. It opens at HERE Arts Center on April 13. It only runs for two weeks, so be sure to get your tickets early.
