Annastina Haapasaari and Hannu Jarvensivu from Finnish National Opera and Ballet in Helsinki shared insights about the new digital opera “Laila” an immersive opera installation that adapts to audiences by harnessing artificial intelligence. This innovative project redefines how audiences can experience opera.

They also updated us on their "XR Stage" project that aims to develop a functional digital twin of the physical opera stage. The purpose is to modernize the production process of the performances from the artistic design work and decision-making, to engineering and manufacturing, and all the way down to stage operations during rehearsals.

Kearney is a pro-bono Partner of the Next Stage Initiative.
