The Bayerische Staatsoper Brings Opera To VR

The Bayerische Staatsoper Brings Opera To VR
June 29, 2018
Some surprises and special guests are waiting for you in our virtual experience ...



As the first opera house worldwide, the Bayerische Staatsoper now invites viewers to a unique virtual reality opera experience.
Munich opera celebrates an anniversary in 2018 hailing the motto LOVED, HATED. For 100 years now it has been a place of regular discussion, of rejection and approval, but never, hopefully, of indifference. People both love and hate it – alternating, concurrent, and mostly for an entire life long!


These emotions will now be broadcast throughout the entire city with the assistance of state-of-the-art technology and made accessible to all Munich residents and visitors. Outstanding musicians, dancers and singers can be enjoyed up close, locations travelled to, which would otherwise be out of bounds, and visitors can personally thrill to the thundering applause of a full-house Nationaltheater.


Two chairs from the Nationaltheater go on a journey though the city for this (Flaucher, English Garden and so many other places), and passers-by are invited to take a seat all over the city. Visitors of our performances find a third chair to join the VR-performance in the lounge of Nationaltheater. With virtual reality glasses and headphones, anyone interested can leave the real world for three minutes and dive into the world of the opera.



Daily during the second part of the Munich Opera Festival
9-31 July 2018
