Veröffentlicht am 01.11.2019

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

Gra­vity Song:
The per­for­mance of the Gra­vity song that you see in this video (https://​www​.youtube​.com/​w​a​t​c​h​?​v​=​Z​s​k​w​i​c​D​M​y​2​Q​&​a​m​p​;​f​e​a​t​u​r​e​=​y​o​u​tu.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/​w​a​t​c​h​?​v​=​t​Q​V​y​o​g​f​a​J​_​w​&​a​m​p​;​f​e​a​t​u​r​e​=​y​o​u​t​u​.​b​e​&​a​m​p​;​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/​w​a​t​c​h​?​v​=​t​Q​V​y​o​g​f​a​J​_​w​&​a​m​p​;​f​e​a​t​u​r​e​=​y​o​u​t​u​.​b​e​&​a​m​p​;​t​=2043) explai­ning the pre­ces­sion of the peri­he­lion of Mer­cury. Kudos to them!!

Hope you have fun watching the Global Sci­ence Opera!
