with Mark Wigglesworth and Adrian Kelly Pavilion Arts Centrebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

Can opera survive the digital age? The availability of live-streamed and on-demand opera has exploded in recent years.

Yet while streamed productions succeed in reaching larger audiences, concerns about how opera is created and consumed continue to grow. Can a cinematic experience really replicate the magic of a live show? And are the big opera houses ultimately stealing audiences, who might otherwise support regional and touring productions in their local areas? Join the debate, as we explore the impact opera’s digital journey is having on the artform.
