The Opera Machine

Royal Opera House

The Opera Machine is an online experience which allows users to watch act III of Wagner’s famous Die Walküre from 17 different camera angles. The 17 simultaneous camera feeds were captured from all over the Royal Opera House and showed action backstage as well as from the audience’s perspective. Users were also free to hop between audio mixes of the auditorium, commentary and backstage chatter at any time as well as following the stage manager’s prompt book.

“An amazing new toy to play with for anyone interested in how a theatre works.”

Stephen Fry
