Here are some photos from the performance, which took place on Thursday 20th September 2012:
The performance integrated live action and music performed by Psappha, one of the UK’s leading contemporary music ensembles, with digital projection. It allowed audiences in separate areas of the building to experience the opera in distinctly different ways.
The live action opera took place in front an audience of 90 in the Digital Performance Laboratory, which enabled rapid scene changes featuring stunning video imagery.
At the same time, a second group of around 70 experienced a live transmission of the performance relayed to a huge, high-resolution video wall in the building’s ‘Egg’ space. They were able to use touchscreen tables to explore online content about the libretto, allowing them to be part of an exciting, immersive theatre experience.
