Open Up

Royal Opera House, London

Open Up

An updatable projection platform showing a poetic film of performances and backstage activities.

NewAngle acted as a consultant on the Royal Opera House’s ‘Open Up’ project, aimed at making this esteemed institution feel accessible to all.

We worked with the client to create a film that explores the performances on stage as well as what happens behind the scenes. A choreographed sequence follows the processes and rhythms of making – rehearsal, performance, design, building, lighting, costume and make-up.

An off-the-shelf content management system was proposed with four 4k projectors and a multi-speaker set up. This provides a cinematic format that can be updated regularly with new films.
