Laila

The canon of opera divas from Aida to Salome will soon be shaken up by an extraordinary new diva

The Finnish National Opera’s Laila invites the audience to shape her reality and the world of the future together with artificial intelligence. She challenges us to encounter our hopes, fears and anxieties related to technology and the unknown tomorrow.

#Laila #OperaBeyond #helsinkifest

The new, interactive work created by Esa-Pekka Salonen, Paula Vesala, Tuomas Norvio and the Ekho Collective for the Finnish National Opera rejects the traditional roles of performing arts, as its music and visuality evolve and change in interaction with the audience. In Laila, you are not the audience, but one of many actors shaping reality. Laila is a unique experience, which is different every time.

Performances 21–23 August are part of the Helsinki Fest festival programme.

Ekho Collective

Ekho Collective is a group of artists, designers and technology professionals, who specialize in designing and implementing immersive experiences. The multidisciplinary collective works at the intersection of art and technology, with the objective of bringing them together in unexpected ways. Members of the collective are Minja Axelsson, Heikki Heiskanen, Essi Huotari, Olli Kilpi, Saara-Henriikka Mäkinen, Joonas Nissinen and Iina Taijonlahti.

The work’s sound is a recorded interpretation by the opera singers and orchestra musicians of the Finnish National Opera.

The collaboration is part of the Nokia Bell Labs Experiments in Arts and Technology programme, in which artists, engineers and researchers explore new opportunities for humans to interact and connect. Kalle Rasinkangas works within a community of top tier researchers, while making the most of Nokia Bell Labs’ advanced technology.
