It’s that time of the year again when art meets science!!! This year is Global Science Opera’s 5th production telling the story of GRAVITY. It celebrates the 100th anniversary of the experimental verification of Einstein´s Theory of General Relativity by Eddington. The opera’s story was created by students in Brazil, Portugal and Sao Tome & Principe. Students from UK, France, Croatia, New Zealand, Brazil, Japan, Norway, Greece, USA, Spain and many others have worked together to create this opera. It premiered worldwide on November 20th at 2 PM CET.
The performance of the Gravity song that you see in this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZskwicDMy2Q&feature=youtu.be) was put together by class 4C. Even though you only see the amazing performers on the stage doing a great job, you must note that the music to which they are dancing was performed by their super-talented peers. A collage of the performance of the Gravity song by students from UK, Portugal and Austria was included at the beginning of the Global Science Opera and can be seen here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQVyogfaJ_w&feature=youtu.be&t=951).

Scene: precession of the perihelion of Mercury
Valerie Wallner and Nils Mosser of class 6B put their skills together and created a wonderful animation which forms the scene (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQVyogfaJ_w&feature=youtu.be&t=2043) explaining the precession of the perihelion of Mercury. Kudos to them!!
Hope you have fun watching the Global Science Opera!
