Last weekend the cast and crew ventured out to Tod’s farm in Waltham, MA to film scenes from the memory download sequence. Directed by Matt Checkowski of The Department of The 4th Dimension, the shoot began in the early morning at the Media Lab and ended up out in Waltham at around 7 PM, at which point we were all ravenous and headed back to Boston to devour some Friendly Toast.
I could try to describe the picturesque farm, the care and precision put in by Matt and his team, or the goofiness of the singers, but it’d probably be much more effective to just show you:
Things have been advancing so quickly over the past few weeks – the singers have come and gone for the first rehearsal period, the walls of the set have come in, and robots are running around going crazy all over Castle Powers. So look out for lots more exciting updates soon!

Very exciting Tod. When is the opening?
Any sound can be “music to the ears”.
Good luck! Judith and John
The opera premieres in Monaco on September 24, with additional performances on the 25th and 26th. It will be coming to Boston and Chicago in the spring of 2011.
