Last November, The End, the first Japanese opera with no conductor or any living person whatsoever, was broadcast at the Théâtre du Chatelet in Paris.
The virtual opera singer Hatsune MIKU is the main protagonist of this unique and non-identifiable musical show that also includes recitatives and arias, like a real opera. With her kawaii look, her teal-colored hair and her endless vocal repertoire, she has become a real star in Japan!
Hatsune’s aesthetic marks a strong contrast with the theme of the show, which is really far from the innocent world of cartoons. In fact, this story is about death and a metaphysical vision of the world.
If you still haven’t seen The End, you can watch its projection during the 15th Impact. You’ll be blown away by the power of this dark and ambitious opus and with its unparalleled sonority depth.
