Opera originated as a publicly accessible form of music theatre in the early 17th Century. It was defined as combining "the visual, aural and performing arts into one elaborate unity".

Multidisciplinary production values are still inherent in today's opera. Auslaender und Staatenlose explores this same formula, but it does so within the context of the Web. Its "stage" is defined by way of a two-way interaction with its audience via the Web browser.

Produced by Andrew Garton and Toy Satellite in association with the Centre for Animation and Interactive Media (RMIT University, Melbourne).

Dedicated to Elena and Alex.
