Opera and the Media of the Future
October 24, 2014
October 25, 2014
£35 - £80
September 17, 2014
Ebert Room, Glyndebourne Opera
East Sussex, BN8 5UU, United Kingdom

The Opera and the Media of the Future initiative will be launched at a two-day event to be held at Glyndebourne on 24th and 25th October 2014.

The event is aimed at both academics and opera/media professionals. We welcome participants from a full range of academic and professional backgrounds, including directors, scholars, administrators, researchers, practitioners, media artists, performers, composers and educators.

The event will consist of a mixture of empirical / theoretical presentations and case studies, with examples of artistic work with new media, including the presentation of two mini web operas commissioned specially for the event. The format will include keynote presentations, panel discussions, practical demonstrations and workshops.

The aims of the event are:

1. To enable exchange between academics and the professional opera world concerning current research and thinking about the media of the future, and impact of new media on those working in the arts.

2. To outline a research strategy for new media between university researchers and professional opera organisations.

Three key questions we are considering:

1. What opportunities and challenges are presented to opera companies by new modes of performance broadcast, and new digital technologies and platforms?

2. How will such modes of broadcast, and technologies and platforms, change the way we think about the concept of the operatic ‘audience’ and notions of ‘liveness’?

3. How might new modes of broadcast, technologies and platforms, impact upon new forms of opera for the digital age?
