The making of Upload by Michel van der Aa

11 July 2022

In the opera Upload, a man undergoes the transformation from a living being to an immortal digital entity. He has a digital version of himself made, hoping this will make him happier. The last step is renouncing his physical body, after which he can live on as an upload. In this manifestation, he comes back home to his daughter. She didn’t know about her father’s decision to have himself uploaded and she tries to come to grips with him. Why did he decide to do it? Is he the same person? And will it be possible for them to carry on like this?
