Science meets its tuneful match in Hai-Ting Chinn’s “Science Fair: An Opera with Experiments.”

This electric musical science show, featuring the high-flying operatic vocals of acclaimed mezzo-soprano Chinn as well as piano work from Erika Switzer, is presented by the Marsh and livestreams for free at 5 p.m. March 6 via www.themarsh.org/marshstream.

The performance blends music and humor with cool scientific lectures and demonstrations. Selling points include familiar classroom science experiments, slideshows illustrated by comic artist Maki Naro, a musical score with libretto created from the words of scientists and teachers, and what’s being billed as “a wearable model of the solar system.”

Sounds awesome.

Chinn, a Northern California native now based in New York City, will participate in a post-performance Q&A with the Marsh founder and artistic director Stephanie Weisman. Following the livestream event, “Science Fair: An Opera with Experiments” will be available for free viewing until midnight March 7.

Chinn will also appear on Weisman’s MarshStream at 7:30 p.m. March 4 to discuss this work.

Chinn has thrilled audiences around the globe during a career that includes such highlights as performing with the New York City Opera and the American Symphony Orchestra, as well as a world tour of Philip Glass and Robert Wilson’s “Einstein on the Beach” and appearances at Carnegie Hall in New York and the Mann Center in Philadelphia.
