Introduction: Karl Heinz Jeron & Hermes Opera
In the end of October Vive Les Robots! met him in the South German City Augsburg during the Lab30 venue to a talk on his forthcoming project Hermes Opera, which is a mobile phone opera, where robots will perform in all four acts.
At that time, he had build the robots, made test with the singing and acting things, putting them on stage, trying to find the proper stage design, plus finished the libretto for act one. And later on in December Karl Heinz Jeron send this video, which shows where he is in the creative process now.
He doubt he'll have a finished version in spring 2012, but there should be a presentable version at that time. He will work the whole year on the whole thing, together with the composers Christian Rentschler and Robert Jähnert.
In this case study on Hermes Opera Karl Heinz Jeron will presents his thoughts on the up to 45 minutes long play during the next four articles.
