#CircOpera2.0

A sensationally spectacular show

The virtuoso performances of premiere circus artists promise a breath-taking, captivating experience. Add to that the Finnish National Opera’s full-size orchestra and opera singers, and you’re in for entertainment like you’ve never seen before. The latest technology adds an impressive twist – the spectacle proudly presents the first ever virtual artist of the opera stage: a singing avatar.

In collaboration with Opera Beyond

The immersive technology of the performance has been produced in collaboration with the Opera Beyond project. The project, which was launched in 2018, aims to enable more experiential performing arts, while making the most of the opportunities provided by new technologies in opera and ballet.
