About this show

Science Fair is an opera singer's love-song to the scientific worldview. Conceived and performed by mezzo-soprano Hai-Ting Chinn, Science Fair consists of excerpts from scientific studies, articles, and interviews, turned into art-songs by various new-music composers, and performed with live illustrations, demonstrations, and experiments. Texts from astronomy and astrophysics, zoology and evolutionary biology, classroom chemistry, and quantum physics are strung together into a choreographed song-cycle that uses elegance and humor to illuminate the processes of science.
