World’s first fully-staged drive-in opera comes to London

From AV Interactive.

“The English National Opera has placed its trust in live event specialist ADI to support the world’s first fully staged drive-in opera, ENO Drive & Live at Alexandra Palace, London from 19-27 September.  This outdoor project provided UK audiences with live opera for the first time since March, with ADI providing a complete event production solution, incorporating staging, structures, LED screens, lighting, OB and cameras.”

“Clearly audio is an all-important part of the opera experience. What would usually be projected from a stage into an acoustically balanced 2,000 seater auditorium had to be translated into hundreds of vehicles in a car park. ADI and ENO explored a number of options including delivery over Bluetooth via an app, but eventually decided on the traditional drive-in solution of delivering over radio signal to individual cars. This was supported by an onsite 5.1 audio system which covered the whole car park.”
