A digital opera in 2 acts by: Craig Vear
A Sentimental Journey is a digital opera for a mixed ensemble of technologies, remote audiences and live performers. It is inspired by Laurence Sterne’s novel, first
published in 1768.
The work will be performed live to the theatre audience, and streamed to hundreds of people around the world, who will be reporting back with photos and postcards of their sentimental journeys. The end result is a shared experience between the audience(s), the performers, the music, the book, and the collective imagination.
Created in association with the Laurence Sterne Trust and dedicated to Patrick Wildgust.
