      Miranda: A Steampunk Murder Mystery Experience

      ****Because we are inventing and utilizing brand new technology to realize this production, we are taking a little extra time before sending out the software and access codes to make sure everything is working properly. Your MIRANDA-specific software will available here: https://lumafestival.itch.io/miranda by Thursday at noon. We will be in contact with you about your access code around then as well. Please note, to run MIRANDA: A Steampunk Theatre Experience, in addition to our software, all VR users will need to install SteamVR which can be found here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/250820/SteamVR/. Scroll down a little on the page and click the green "Play Game" button and follow the prompts to install Steam. If you experience technical difficulties, the YouTube Live stream is available at each show time at www.mirandarealtime.com (this may or may not look exactly like the LUMA YouTube page... hello vanity URL :) and can be watched without an access code. We will welcome you with open arms to a subsequent VR performance. Thank you for your patience as we explore this exciting new avenue for live performance art in a time of COVID.****Unprecedented times call for unprecedented measures and this experiment is a deep exploration of a new performer/crew-safe production model in the COVID era. We're placing performers in isolated motion capture cubicles, in full motion capture gear and tracking their movements (and voices) live into a 3D virtual environment. Join us as we transcend the boundaries of COVID, space, and time zones to experience live opera together again! With a story and score by groundbreaking composer Kamala Sankaram, Miranda transports us to a dystopian future where growing class disparities have reached epic proportions and our criminal justice system serves only as a parody of what it once was. A wealthy woman has died under mysterious circumstances and three suspects’ lives are on the line. They’ll testify in aria for the chance at freedom. The online audience will serve as judge and jury–but can they even accept their own role at face value? Or has the game been rigged from the start? Presented by LUMA, Tri-Cities Opera and Opera Omaha. All showtimes are EST. There are three ways to watch Miranda:1.

Kamala Sankaram's adapted score, conducted by David Bloom, balances apocalyptic pop beats with the lush lyricism of classic opera, recounting a tale that explores themes of class, bureaucracy and self-determination.
