The world’s first large-scale, live silent opera performance will premiere in Sydney when Opera Australia stages Sydney Opera House – The Opera: The Eighth Wonder, using the famous building as an opera stage for the first time.
A huge cast, chorus and orchestra will perform the opera live, with the sound transmitted to the 3,000 strong audience through state-of-the-art Audio Technica headphones, a feat not accomplished before with classical music on such a large scale.
The singers will perform on the steps of the Sydney Opera House with the orchestra performing inside and the sound combined. With this unique presentation of ‘silent opera’ the audience can enjoy the sumptuous music cocooned in a world of pure sound.
