Billy Henningsen, Senior Sound Engineer, Norwegian TV - Oslo, Norway
Joseph Schütz, Senior Engineer, Austrian Radio - Vienna, Austria
Peter Urban, Senior Engineer, Bavarian Radio - Munich, Germany
In this workshop the aesthetics and concepts of an ideal opera sound will be introduced, theoretically. Be swept away by the realities of awkward acoustics, directors and producers with challenging stage directions and last minute ideas. Both Bayreuth and Vienna, the new opera of Oslo, and all the other big stages have had their transmissions and you will hear how the challenges have been met. In stereo and surround.
