SoBe Arts in partnership with The Colony Theater is producing the World Premiere of TESLA, a multidisciplinary opera about the exceptional life, brilliant inventions and futuristic explorations of Nikola Tesla. His radical visions of scientific potential, which led to his rise as well as his downfall, resonate even more powerfully in the 21st century.
Tesla’s grand vision to liberate nature’s energy and create a path to an environmentally clean future is illuminated with music, unique set and costume designs, carefully mapped digital animations, mechanical electrical stage devices, and poetic storytelling.
We believe this production will help bring into focus Tesla’s tragic sacrifices and, through the emotional juggernaut of his story, will contribute to raising the awareness of the dangers of living unsustainably as Tesla predicted over a century ago. To meet these goals the work will receive a “live” world premiere and the production will be professionally recorded, videotaped and edited for worldwide distribution.
We are increasingly drawn to the parallels between humanity, culture and environmental sustainability. It is this conflict that is at the heart of our motivation to tell the tragic and inspirational real-life story of Nikola Tesla, one vastly more captivating than that of any epic protagonist. Tesla’s prophetic work framed the worlds portrayed in science fiction and also formed the foundation for modern-day wireless energy transfer, wireless communications, laser beams, neon and fluorescent lighting, radio transmission, remote control and robotics.
