“Baroque-era performers, along with dancers and acrobats… a 360-degree spectacle”
– Rolling Stone
“Theatrical events with dreamlike imagery… visually striking.”
– New York Times
Since Cosmic Opera’s mysterious teaser video and Twitter countdown were released last week, the internet has been abuzz about the “extrasensory dance event series” that promises to change the landscape of dance music forever. Both The New York Times and Rolling Stone revealed further details on the extrasensory dance event happening at Hammerstein Ballroom on February 24.
On January 11 the curtain was been dropped; the promise renewed.
The official launch revealed Cosmic Opera’s inaugural headliner (and partner in production) to be none other than Swedish House Mafia member Axwell.
Cosmic Opera is an intimate, extrasensory dance event series combining the cast and high-value production of a renaissance opera spectacle with an over-the-top dance music concert. Set to take place in the beautiful Hammerstein Ballroom, Cosmic Opera will combine electronic music, art, and production in its highest form from across the centuries. Electronic music and theatrical production will be rolled into one, with never-before seen laser and lighting elements integrated with dramatic, opera-themed activations spread throughout the venue.
Axwell, the DJ mogul and producer superstar who will be inaugurating the series, is also a creator and partner in bringing Cosmic Opera to life. He will be overseeing the musical and performance elements as well as adding his 15+ years of concert expertise, veteran producer talents and timeless dance-music knowledge to Cosmic Opera.

Watch the new trailer for Cosmic Opera:
Bringing this revolutionary new event to the masses is Justin Cohen, former COO of the Summit Series, the top ranked conference event in the world. Justin has already made a name for himself through his exemplary creativity and drive, and was profiled in Fast Company and Forbes for executing what Forbes called a “floating SXSW” through his work with the Summit Series. With a background in event production of all sorts, Justin had the idea for Cosmic Opera when he saw a revolution in music, but no revolutionary event to showcase it. The 24 year-old has consequently gathered a team of the best and brightest minds of our age to bring this extraordinary vision to fruition. The team behind Cosmic Opera is comprised of diverse innovators from music, events, production, technology, theater, marketing, and videos. The video team has worked on films like Requim for a Dream, and television such as The Sopranos and Sex in the City. The production team includes experts who oversee the World Science Festival, the top laser crafters who installed lasers on the pyramids of Egypt, and high-tech visual designers who possess the newest 3D mapping capabilities.
