Italy’s Teatro Lirico di Cagliar will become the first in the world to hold an interactive opera using Google Glass. The opera company will be holding a trial performance with Google’s first wearable July 30 of Giacomo Puccini’s Turnadot.
The Glass experience uses a system developed by TSC Labs and lets the audience view the performance through the eyes of the performers or backstage access from the view point of a stage hand.
This is not the first innovation coming out of this theatre. Teatro Lirico di Cagliar proudly hosts a Research and Technology centre and along with the Google Glass experience, the theatre will also be offering live streams on its social media, sending real-time photos and videos to those that follow.
