On Saturday, June 18th at the Theater Maastricht there will be effected a 3D recording of the Opera Zuid-production L’Elisir d’Amore. By this recording Opera Zuid will be the first performing arts institution in the Netherlands whose performance will be broadcasted in 3D. The production is an initiative of Opera Zuid and the Dutch culture channel Brava3D, in collaboration with T36 Media BV, Outside Broadcast NV and the Brabant Orchestra. It is the first European 3D-stage production which is not made for cinema but exclusively for television.
Committed entrepreneurship has made it possible to realize this very expensive 3D adventure with the collaboration of several partners. The 3D registration of L’Elisir d’Amore is only feasible thanks to the collaboration between a large number of partners. The coordination is in the hands of T36 Media BV. The Belgian company Outside Broadcast NV pursues along with T36 the 3D registration including assembly and finishing. The control is in the hands of the experienced director Dick Kuijs. Brava3D holds the authorization for the broadcast. Unit 14 of Outside Broadcast NV is one of the most powerful, flexible OB vans of Europe; sports and music events like the Champions League and Kings of Leon in 3D are recorded with it. With a dimension of 17 by 7 meters workspace is this car suitable for demanding productions as the 3D recording of this opera.
L’Elisir d’Amore The opera L’Elisir d’Amore by Donizetti is known as a comic, amusing story with a happy ending. The character development and the difficult rapprochement between Adina and Nemorino gives the work a considerable emotional depth. Opera Zuid moved this story to a location that we all know: the high school, where it’s all about love. The decor and costumes – designed by Pia Oertel – give the production the appearance of a pop art-style comic. Soloists in this production include Kim Savelsbergh and Andrea Giovannini. The orchestral accompaniment is in the hands of the Brabant Orchestra. The whole is led by conductor
Stefan Veselka.
