With its singing and expressions, the robot "Alter 3", the day before yesterday, dazzled visitors to "Expo 2020 Dubai", as it presented words prepared by artificial intelligence to the rhythm of piano melodies and sounds composed by a computer, for the robot to participate in the opera.

The Japanese musician and composer, Shibuya Keichiro, presented the world premiere of Android Opera titled “Mirror” on the Jubilee Podium at Expo 2020 Dubai.

The opera also featured a group of monks led by Izen Fujiwara, a Buddhist musician known as shōmyo, which was founded 1,200 years ago.

The NSO Symphony Orchestra from the UAE, a 45-member troupe, participated in the show.

The opera "Mirror" is the culmination of Shibuya's work, which brings together different people, cultures, technology and traditional Buddhist music.

To complete this audio show, the light projections of the French artist Justin Emard, who specializes in visual arts, focused on the facial expressions of the robot "Alter 3", in addition to other effective projections spread throughout the place.

The musician Shibuya had indicated that "Expo 2020" is an inspiring platform that is not only an inspiring platform for sustainable life and the achievement of the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, but also heralded the establishment of exhibitions of digital progress across industries around the world, pointing out that "Japan is not alien to technology, as the nation is It continues to penetrate the sector and push the boundaries constantly, as we expect to see the extent to which AI is ready to lead an orchestra on the global stage.”
