In Chile, the dancers of Myrta Fatima Villanueva Alvarez-Santullano (Univ. of Antafogasta) are preparing a dance about the Discovery of the Higgs Boson for the opera.

A legacy of the United Nations-sanctioned International Year of Light 2015 (IYL20015), the Global Science Opera (GSO) is a global creative education initiative made possible through digital interactions and live-streaming. It’s the first opera initiative in history which is created, produced and performed as a global community.

The Global Science Opera’s new production will premiere on 19 November 2016 at 13:30 UTC in countries around the globe. The opera named “Ghost Particles” tells the story of amazing zoo of particles starring Higgs Boson, Neutrinos and Photons. The opera will be streamed online by TV-Haugaland and includes a live virtual visit to the CMS experiment at CERN, the largest multinational particle physics lab in the world.

The Global Science Opera is co-organized with a network supported by Global Hands on Universe and Galileo Teacher Training Programme. Performers are students, teachers, scientists, artists and technologists from more than 25 partners in 20 countries.

The opera is a flagship initiative of the European Commission’s Horizons 2020 Project CREATIONS, that develops creative approaches based on art for an engaging science classroom. It also will provide a research focus for the Norwegian Research Council’s project “iSCOPE“.
