I founded Virtually Opera in order to explore cinematically-filmed opera. In an age of livecasts and music videos, I wanted to make work that adapted opera for the screen like the musicals I loved watching as a child. Since 2014, we've:
- Presented the first ever relaxed performances of an opera at the Edinburgh Fringe.
I think we’re making progress - you can watch a selection of videos here, whether you want to see mournful clowns, vainglorious composers, or the anti-vampire resistance. Head over to our YouTube channel for more!
We're currently working on a new show - We Sing/I Sang, which mixes opera with tabletop roleplaying games, Noh theatre, and science fiction - you can see a first draft of the script below!
