The contemporary opera Grid, composed by Age Veeroos, tells a story of life in the metropolis, showing us the anguished contrast, even oppressive conflict, between the virtual and the real world. Incorporating extensive video installation with live and pre-recorded electronic music, Grid had its world premiere at the arts and culture venue Kesselhaus in Berlin, Germany 21-22 April 2011. Grid was also the winner of the main prize at the 2010 Operare competition organised by the Berlin Contemporary Opera (ZOB – Zeitgenössische Oper Berlin).
