Variation on The magic flute an Installation by Giovanna Cerise Opens in Second Life

GiovannaCerise’s  installation inspired by  Mozart's "The Magic Flute"  opens in Second Life on Friday, the 20th of January at 1:00 pm PST/SLT.  Her note card with information about the installation follows:

A surprising opera that unfolds in a series of environments full of references, allusions and allegories, in an infinite game of layers that overlap and intersect.

The bright stairs can be one of the tracks to follow to retrace the journey of the opera’s protagonist and allowing the visitor to replace it, but, as in any journey of personal growth, the path isn’t easy and the risk of falling and of go back is always present.

We give you some tips to better appreciate and interact with this opera:

1. It is best to explore the installation simply walking through, but you get a good effect also flying between locations and by inserting the mouse look.

2. You can listen some the citations of the work by clicking on musical notes, located in strategic points and allow both to activate the music in World or to open musical links on Youtube

3. The immersion is also stimulated by the use of poses that encourage interactivity with the work

4. Before the visit, we recommend reading the story of "The Magic Flute," to appreciate the many references in the installation to musical opera.
