SKYLIGHT
A Global Science Opera

The GSO’s first production, “SkyLight”, was the first ever opera to be written and performed by a global community.

It was endorsed by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) as an official project of the International Year of Light 2015. The scientific concept was provided by Dr. Rosa Doran. It was performed during World Space Week 2015 as a collaboration with Lunar Mission One

 

POSTER
PRESENTATION

 

During 2015, a network of schools, universities, art institutions and volunteers in 35 countries collaborated to create and perform a science opera inspired by Cosmic Light together, providing a platform for creative science learning as well as cross-border friendship and cooperation.

Award-winning space and nature photographer Babak Tafreshi provided the original artwork for the SkyLight poster.

“SkyLight” has been presented at the European Planetray Science Congress in Cascais, Portugal; the Royal Institution in London, England, during Lunar Mission One’s event; the CREAT-IT Conference; the Greek Physical Society Conference.

The performance of “SkyLight” took place in the 35 involved countries simultaneously in October, 2015, and coincided with the final conference of the CREAT-IT project (www.creatit-project.eu).
