“The Opera Machine presents an extraordinary multi-angled view of the intricate theatrical process behind the scenes during a performance” This particular link sends you to a completely new experience of Act III of Wagner’s Die Walküre.
I loved this so much, and I know I am overly enthusiastic about this.. but how much cooler can it get than being in all 17 places at once?
Click through all of the video links to see what is happening at the same time in different places on the stage.
I think this is such an amazing engaging educational tool. It can be used to show just how much goes on during an opera and personally I think it could even make opera seem much “cooler” and interactive.
After talking about the FOMO ( fear of missing out ) phenomenon among our generation last week in Marketing class, I could not help thinking that this is such way to combat this. You won’t need to fear missing out on any of these different stage angles. 🙂
I hope you take a look and all get as excited about this as me!
