Gamut Inc‘s robot opera R.U.R.

Rossum‘s Universal Robots

Blueprint for many science fictions of the 20th century and origin of the term robot: As one of the first literary texts, Karel Čapek's "R.U.R. - Rossum's Universal Robots" deals with the extinction of mankind. It reflects on topics that are still relevant today, such as economic and ecological catastrophes and human hubris. A century after the premiere, Gamut Inc with Ruben Reniers, Gina May Walter, Georg Bochow, Patric Schott, the RIAS Kammerchor and the German Book Prize-winning librettist Frank Witzel bring an updated version to the stage as musical theater.
Čapek's brother created the neologism "robot" for the work. The famous science fiction author Isaac Asimov called "R.U.R." the "worst important play of its time." The new version transforms the themes of the original into a grotesque world in which intermediate beings made of humans and objects move through live electronic soundscapes, complex light choreographies and optical illusions. They are incessantly pursued by the mass of humans and robots, which the RIAS Kammerchor brings to life as video projections in Orson Welles 's film noir aesthetic.
