AH! Opera No-Opera took to the stage last night mixing an array of robotic and interactive musical technologies, ingenious stagecraft and multinational musicians and performers.

Created by David Rosenboom, composer-performer and dean of The Herb Alpert School of Music at CalArts, and poet-writer Martine Bellen, AH! used an interactive opera generator in the shape of a mandala (wheel of life) that houses 13 interlinking stories with movable parts and pathways. And to engage those who cannot make it to the REDCAT performances, AH! is streamed live on the web each evening.

Here’s a sampling of music from the ‘opera no-opera':
