Opera-Aida-2

Opera Australia is going fully digital for their premieres

It was back in 2018 that Opera Australia first introduced their new digital screens in Aida.

They fly around the stage, producing incredible images of stage props, striking colours and engaging projections that singers, the choir and stage actors move around seamlessly like they’re barely there.

Here’s a refresher:

Pegged as the opera of the future, Opera Australia is bringing them back again, only this time, instead of limiting it to one production, they’re turning them out for all of them.

They’re the first company in the world to present a fully digital season of three brand new productions when it opens its Sydney Winter Season on 28 June 2019 in Sydney.

Starring at the world renowned Sydney Opera House, Madama Butterfly – perfectly timed too, given its last production by Moffat Oxenbould wound-up last year Anna Bolena and Whiteley will benefit for the digital treatment, no doubt wowing everyone who’s there to see it.

They work thanks to fourteen, 7-metre high suspended LED screens that are choreographed to move seamlessly around the stage, creating a visual landscape that needs to be seen to be believed, and taking opera to a whole new level.

See more and get tickets to the productions at the Opera Australia website.
