This month we travelled to Shanghai to collaborate with Full Dimension Multimedia and Barco to deliver an immersive sound experience for audiences attending Shanghai’s North Bund Opera week.
This outdoor concert series was staged at North Bund on the banks of the Huangpu River and comprised of three concerts.
The first concert was a production of La Traviata directed by Marco Carniti and conducted by Xu Zhong, the second, a Gala Symphony concert, conducted by Xu Zhong, the third a Gala Concert - Excerpts from Opera, conducted by Xu Zhong and Sergio Alapont, and featured Soprano, Daniela Schillaci, Mezzo-soprano, Elena Belfiore, Tenor, Emanuele D’Aguanno and Baritone, Piero Terranova.
The speaker system consisted of 11-line array stacks and out fill arrays for the main PA and over 250 speakers configured and rigged above the audience area. The entire system was driven by Barco’s IOSONO CORE processor and delivered a truly immersive listening experience for the audience.
Thanks to event producers Full Dimension Multimedia and Barco for what turned out to be a great collaboration.
