Opera Explores Social Media Practices Offline

Social media has now made it to the high arts, as it is the subject of a new opera in London.

The English National Opera’s newest production Two Boys by Nico Muhly explores the both humorous and dangerous elements of living our lives online via Facebook and Twitter. This video entitled ‘Can I be your friend’ parallels the same practices we exercise daily, questioning this now accepted practice of letting strangers into our lives via what appear to be safe channels of connectivity.  We acquire new followers on Twitter so what about if someone in the real world does exactly the same thing?

Two Boys runs June 24-July 8
