EUGENIO PERINELLI I
(Artistic director and technical designer Virtual Reality)
It has taken the world of opera a few more decades to debunk and embrace the fertile interference and endless techno-visual possibilities of new media. A full demonstration of this is the Pagliacci staging presented at the Carlo Felice in Genoa by Cristian Taraborrelli, who decided to work on Augmented Reality. This is the first time this has happened in Italy and perhaps even abroad, except for such stagings at the Comische Oper in Berlin. The lecture we are proposing with the director intends to delve into this complex innovative theatrical process, presenting a significant use of the most disparate video technologies, in particular multiple large-scale video projections (both overlap and non-overlap), shaped, mapped and masked, on different levels and on materials of various kinds including tulle, tripolines, cloth, earth and plastic materials
