Current, Rising

Current, Rising is a 15-minute hyper reality opera experience, combining virtual reality with a multisensory set, blending stagecraft with CG technology. It invites audiences to step into an immersive, atmospheric virtual world and experience a dream-like journey carried musically by a poem layered in song. It is a radical new way of seeing opera in which the audience are at the centre of the performance.
