SoBe Arts to Present TESLA at Historic Colony Theater
SoBe Arts is partnering with the beautiful and historic Colony Theatre, on Lincoln Road in South Beach, to present the World Premiere of TESLA, a multidisciplinary musical theater/opera September 2017. Exact dates, times, and tickets to be announced.
Narrated by his friend, Mark Twain, TESLA is about the exceptional life, explorations, brilliant inventions and genius of Nikola Tesla.
A true visionary, Nikola Tesla gave away a vast number of patents because they were fossil fuel-consuming, and went to work on the Tesla Coil which would connect humanity to the very wheelwork of nature and allow the extraction of free and non-polluting energy for all. As a result he died a pauper, crushed by the greed and hunger for power of his contemporaries.
Tesla's radical visions of scientific potential and capitalist reform, which led to his rise as well as his downfall, resonate even more powerfully in the 21st century.
