Still image from Secret Garden- Digital Opera by Martin Rieser and Andrew Hugill
The Digital Opera Research Group investigates all aspects of digital opera, using analytical, musicological and creative research methods. "Digital Opera" is deemed to include works that self-define as such and digital works that are conceived on an operatic scale or with operatic intentions. It is a precept of the DORG that the art-form "opera" is being substantially reinvented in the digital age. Our research concerns the nature and consequences of this reinvention. This symposium will present new works and insights from the members' activities, and that of like-minded researchers, and offer discussion time on a range of themes.
