OPERAcraft – Virginia Tech

In December 2013, a group of Virginia Tech students along with local K-12 students performed OPERAcraft at the Moss Center for the Arts. The project, run through the Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology, merged video games with an opera.

OPERAcraft’s goal is to provide an opportunity for K-12 students to create and perform a fully produced virtual opera. Starting with music borrowed from Mozart operas and a specific number of characters, the project inspires K-12 students to create a story and then the libretto; create the virtual set through a custom version of ubiquitous Minecraft video game/ sandbox; create avatars for each character; and control avatars within the confines of the virtual world.
