Welcome to the theatre! See the stage as you have never seen it before! In this interactive stage technology presentation, you will get a unique experience of the NI Opera and Lyric co-production of the musical Kiss Me, Kate and learn about the nuts and bolts of a theatre production.
We will show you how stage lights work, how sets fly and explain why theatre technicians must always wear helmets. Melle Stewart, who stars as Lilli/Katharine will sing a song from the show and talk about how stagecraft is informed by the possibilities and limitations of the technology available in a production.
NI Opera are delighted to take part again in the NI Science Festival with this exclusive backstage tour, following on from the sell-out event ‘The Anatomy of the Voice’ in 2019.
