Поставленная задача и ее решение
"Opera for all" is a global BMW initiative. It's goal is to bring reticent art of opera to masses through a series of free open-air events. Russian BMW unit decided to participate in it as a part of BMW's long-term relations with Bolshoy Theater (the most famous Russian theater).
BMW came to Pichesky to find the new approach to the event and find solution that will amplify the experience in an out-of-the-box way.
You need to hear in order to listen to opera. That's why "Opera for all" appeared to be not actually for all. As far as Russia lacks inclusive events, we wanted to make our initiative avaliable for people with hearing disorders.
We chose Subpacks (mostly used by DJ's and sound engineers) that transform music into vibration. They look like flat backpacks and perfectly fit seat backs, so we installed them there.
Verbal part of opera was made through sign language (as far as russian deaf people have troubles with subtitles). It was performed by Amber Galloway Gallego, who is famous for working with Lana Del Rey, Snoop Dog and others. She is great at showing not just text, but emotions and drama. Her performance was broadcasted on the iPads our guests had.
Our special guest (deaf guests) could feel and understand Opera together with whole city.
