Nabaz’mob: An Opera for 100 Smart Rabbits

Stephanie Wells writing for VINGT Paris

Above the cacophony of the rue de Rivoli, an army of one hundred robot rabbits wait in a dark corner of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs.

“Nabaz’mob”, Antoine Schmitt and Jean-Jacques Birgé’s opera for one hundred smart rabbits, is an unexpectedly relaxing 23 minute experimental art and music installation. The rabbits’ ears and movements are choreographed to an original score emanating from tiny, but powerful, speakers in their bellies.


This robot rabbit symphony is not nearly as creepy as it sounds; they are not coming to get you. However, they did recently return from the Ars Electronica Festival in Linz, Austria, where they marched away with the Award of Distinction. 

Through November 9th, flee to another kind of opera for a strangely charming and utterly unexpected respite from the hustle and bustle.
