"Out of the Ordinary" by Irish National Opera

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.
"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.
