Watch: An Opera Filmed Inside the Large Hadron Collider
Symmetry, a film by Juliette Stevens, is a full opera about the beginning of the universe that is set inside the Large Hadron Collider, the world's largest particle collider:
Described by the filmmakers as a "story of eternal love," Symmetry is a dance and opera film about a scientist in the Large Hadron Collider who becomes disillusioned with the notion of finding the "theory of everything" and recreating the Big Bang. Then, he meets a singer and dancer who is able to use her voice to show him the beginning of the Universe, "when everything was symmetrical and before the existence of time."
Symmetry, which aims to explore the boundary between science and art, was filmed inside the particle collider itself, marking the first time that the LHC has allowed comprehensive access for an artistic endeavor. The above video is not the full opera, but a preview of the film, which will premiere at Eye Film on March 14.
