Discover the 4 bold + innovative nominees for the FEDORA Digital Prize 2021:

Jury Nominees:
"Out of the Ordinary" by Irish National Opera
This project harnesses the creativity and life experience of diverse Irish communities that currently have no connection whatsoever to opera. It uses cutting edge technology as a tool to distil and present their stories. It results in the world’s first ever VR community opera.

"Solastalgia" by Poznań Opera House
Solastagia is a new operatic entity delivered to the audience as a virtual experience based on new technologies. Its interactive virtual installation and sound environments are tied together with an application, a "navigator" that allows interaction with the audience.

"Totality in Parts, a reenactment" by Royal Swedish Opera
This project is a new, interactive installation inspired by the performance "Totality in Parts" about the inseparability of the individual from the behaviour of a group in which the visitor is the centre of the spatial but intimate installation.

Audience's Favourite:
"Opera on Brainwaves" by Muzi a Zeny
Opera on Brainwaves is a unique augmented opera experience that will take you on a journey of exploration into the self and the other, into emotions and technology through Smart Fashion.
