Opera has always been a multimedia art form. It was designed to be a unique combination of music, drama, set design and often dance. But Christopher Dobrian's "Microepiphanies: A Digital Opera," which will premiere Wednesday at UCI, adds some modern technology to the mix. The UCI composer uses several computers, a digital sound effects processor, a number of synthesizers and other complicated electronic machinery to control what you hear and what you see.
