An Epic-Looking Opera Filmed Inside CERN's Large Hadron Collider

By Casey Chan on at

Symmetry is a dance and opera film that was directed by Ruben van Leer and was shot inside the CERN Large Hadron Collider. It looks rather good and totally intriguing with some scenes feeling a little bit like Interstellar. The film will premiere on March 15 in Amsterdam.

Symmetry is a dance and opera film set in the particle accelerator machine run in Geneva by CERN, the world's largest scientific institute. Researcher Lukas gets out of balance while working on the theory of everything and the smallest elementary particles. He rediscovers love through the voice of Claron and she takes him back to the moment of the big bang, when everything was symmetrical and before the existence of time. A story of eternal love…

The dancing can get a little weird but hey, it all still looks kind of cool.

Also here's a bit on how it was filmed:
