Silent Opera. Such a cool concept. The point of it all is to allow the audience two ways to listen to an opera: with headphones which will play a pre-recorded version with full orchestra, or without headphones, which will mean they will hear live singing backed by only a few instruments. Either way, the singers act and sing live on stage. It's a mixture of being in the moment, and enjoying what technology can give us today.
Silent Opera is currently showing a new English translation of Monteverdi's L'Orfeo in London.
