Holland Festival with Hatsune Miku

The End
Keiichiro Shibuya + Hatsune Miku
Where: Nationale Opera & Ballet, Amstel 3, 1011 PN Amsterdam
When: June 4 – 5, 2015
Tickets: HERE

With 3D concerts sold out all over the world, more than two and a half million Facebook friends and a repertoire of more than 100,000 ‘user-released’ songs, Hatsune Miku is arguably the biggest pop star in Japan. Now she performs in The End, the first Vocaloid opera; an opera without orchestra or human singer, made up of 3D projections on multiple screens and electronic music.
The only performers on stage is the holographic animation Hatsune Miku, also a virtual animal figure, and – like any living being – Keiichiro Shibuya, a musician who is constantly looking to push musical boundaries.
Miku begins her journey with a question: “will I die?”. Because despite the special designed Louis Vuitton outfit, she is not a real person, but she was born in a software for voice synthesizers, developed by the Japanese company Crypton Future Media.
Traveling through a virtual world, Miku explores Shibuya’s score of minimalist techno and dance, trance, modern and contemporary music and “sound art” the paradox of its own existence.
