The Glo-Opera is an opera for the eyes, an arrangement of lights chaotically choreographed to the order of music. It is a story told with lights in the darkness. This Glo-Opera tells the story of the universe from birth to Love to death and rebirth. It takes part in three acts.
The first parts tells the story of the Initial Big Bang; how the inverse started as an infinitely small point of light and rapidly expanded into 26 dimensions, and from those 26 dimensions it collapsed into 4. The second part of the story is a dance of the 4 dimensions finally collapsing into 2, the dichotomy of life” love/hate, good/evil, and death/birth….Then the final story tells of a love of the last two dimensions. It is an intertwinement of the love of light and energy as it melds into One, the singularity. The final moment collapses into nothingness only to be reborn into another infinitely small point, the rebirth.
