Bergen National Opera Presents Audio Art Project THIS EVENING'S PERFORMANCE HAS NOT BEEN CANCELLED

Article Pixel

Bergen National Opera has teamed up with Sound Artist Zoë Irvine to explore a different kind of listening using an 'opera call centre'. THIS EVENING'S PERFORMANCE HAS NOT BEEN CANCELLED will give patrons the unique opportunity to reach the theatre by phone.

How it Works

You are invited to call in, select an opera company from the menu and connect live to an usher, someone who is involved with that opera, they may be a singer, a designer, a dramaturg, a trainee, a composer, an administrator, a make-up artist and so on. They will introduce you to their production and guide you through the recorded material in the call centre. Callers will then be able to make further choices - hear more from that opera or bounce off round Europe to other productions.

There are a variety of languages available. If you are calling the Norwegian number, you will hear the choices in Norwegian and English, if you are calling in Spain you will get Spanish and English, and so on. Wherever you want to connect to choose the number local to you and you will be able to choose to join any of our productions from there. English is available throughout.

Among the featured productions are the Muziektheater Transparant & Opera Ballet Vlaanderen's "Usher;" Bergen National Opera's "La Clemenza di Tito;" The Airport Society & Opera Ballet Vlaanderen's "Symphony of Expectations;" Teatro Real de Madrid's "Achille in Sciro;" the Dutch National Opera's "Rusalka;" the Grand Théâtre de Genève's "Voyage Vers L'Espoir;" Staatsoper Hanover's "The Murder of Halit Yozgat;" Wuppertaler Bühnen's "La Bohème;" and Garsington Opera's "The Marriage of Figaro."
