A Sentimental Journey – Digital Opera

On the 28th and 29th of March the brilliantly talented Craig Vear and the Open Work Ensemble are presenting A Sentimental Journey at York Theatre Royal.

It is a digital opera for a mixed ensemble of technologies, remote audiences and live performers. Inspired by Laurence Sterne’s novel, first published in 1768.

You can read more about the detail of the project on their website  but in a nutshell:

“The work will be performed live to the theatre audience, and streamed to hundreds of people around the world, who will be reporting back with photos and postcards of their sentimental journeys. The end result is a shared experience between the audience(s), the performers, the music, the book, and the collective imagination.”

Each performance will include a post show discussion and will be streamed live at the A Sentimental Journey website.

Having worked with Craig on a number of occasions before, I have no doubt that this will be an engaging, enjoyable, interesting and inspiring event.

To book tickets to be in the live audience please contact the Theatre online or by phoning 01905 623568
