Der Weg des Sounds

40 microphones for the orchestra, 20 microphones for the choir, 1 camera for the conductor and 1,000 meters of 10 gigabit fiber optic cable: this is how our "sound transmission from next door" works, with which the orchestra and choir of Zurich Opera House are transmitted live from the rehearsal room on Kreuzplatz to the auditorium of the Opera House. With this play model, we can play our planned program for the 2020/21 season with only minor changes, despite the Corona pandemic.


Advance ticket sales for the performances in November start on October 10!
