In 2004, the opera scene was taken by storm by the
ground-breaking production of Richard Wagner's opera
Tristan und Isolde
in Los Angeles. This book offers a
behind-the-scenes look at how the visionary American
artist Bill Viola created four hours of video as a visual
complement to this profound psychological drama.
It also tells the story of its commissioning by the then
Paris Opera director Gerard Mortier, who pushed the
boundaries of what opera could be by inviting a trinity
of California-based creatives to re-imagine a
Tristan und Isolde for our times.

For more detailed information, view the book sheet.

The Night Journey (2007–2018), is a collaboration
between Bill Viola and USC Game Innovation Lab,
including award winning game designers Tracy
Fullerton,Todd Furmanski and Kurosh ValaNejad

The Night Journey is one of the first experimental art
games ever made. It uses both game and video
techniques to tell the universal story of an individualís
journey toward enlightenment.
