“Light in the Void,” which debuts at Boettcher Concert Hall on Oct. 5, is a multi-sensory stage production designed to entertain and educate. The Colorado Symphony will perform Wintory’s original score while actors portray an allegorical tale about the quest for human knowledge. A trio of respected, real-life scientists will pop in to talk about their groundbreaking work in terms we can all understand.
Wintory admits the show is difficult to visualize, given a mix of elements that pull in potentially competing directions. Is it a TED Talk with cutting-edge special effects? An episode of “Cosmos,” but fit for a theatrical environment? Whatever it is, it’s never been done before.
