Hatsune Miku, the virtual pop singer, has been selling out entire theatres for her most recent performance in The End, the world’s first (and possibly only) vocaloid opera. As would be expected from an opera that replaces humans with digital singers, The End is full of surprises. But the most surprising of all is their choice of Marc Jacobs as digital wardrobe designer. Miku’s new outfit was recently revealed at the premiere of The End in Shibuya.
Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media is about to add a new twist to a classical performance. At the beginning of December they are set to hold probably the first ever Vocaloid opera, titled THE END.
The opera is supported by a strong production team but was recently announced to have gotten some brand name backing from the fashion industry. Fashion world titan Marc Jacobs and a team from Louis Vuitton are lending their talents to costume the lead Hatsune Miku.
