Opera multimedia directed by Adham Hafez

PsychOpera is the first multimedia Opera production in Egypt and the Arab Speaking Region by Adham Hafez, and is sung by the renowned Soprano Neveen Allouba. A first introduction has been done in Falaki theater in January 2011 in the frame of 2BContinued Festival.

A mesh system between sounds and images, invisibilities and presences, PsychOpera probes the dense and un-represented information around the human mind and the human presence, raising crucial questions on the integrity of Identity and of Memory, testing preset ideas about what the Self is and what presence is, and proposing complex modes of perceiving and comprehending.
