Synopsis
Turing is the story of Alan Mathison Turing as told by the artificial intelligence that he envisioned. A computer program named MIRA creates the libretto and music and “plays” the human singers, musicians, and dancers. She also lends her digitally synthesized operatic voice to serve as a narrator.

 

 
The story begins with young Alan Turing as he discovers that he is a homosexual and those close to him realize that his mind works in unusual ways. The second act depicts Turing’s intelligence work during World War II as he masterminds a machine that becomes capable of decoding nearly every piece of intercepted German intelligence. The third act dramatizes Turing’s vision for the future of machine intelligence as well as the brief love affair that lead to his conviction for homosexual acts and his subsequent suicide.
