Symposium Opera and Media Arts

-

Digital technologies are ubiquitous. Applied to opera they open up countless possibilities to offer unusual experiences and to make this art form accessible to the audience in a new way. This allows for the spark of enthusiasm to also reach those people who have never seen an opera performance before.

The STAATSTHEATER together with the ZKM Karlsruhe invites media artists and theatre producers to attend this symposium in the Opera and Media Arts series. Attendants will gain an insight into the development of the digital and media in musical theatre and investigate the question of what opera could look like in the year 2070. The symposium culminates in the premiere of the opera Turandot, which is staged by the Italian director Fabio Cherstich in collaboration with the Russian video arts collective AES&F and produced as a cooperation with the opera houses in Palermo and Bologna.
