“Opera can make us see, feel, and hear the world differently”.
Why is opera important? Why is any art important?
It offers us a reflection of who we are, how we relate to others, and what it means, collectively and individually, to be human. Opera performed live is a uniquely thrilling experience – at its best, it is hugely powerful and the most emotionally direct of all art forms. The combination of dramatic narrative, stagecraft, and music, and especially the range and vulnerability of the human voice, make opera the art form that comes closest to expressing pure emotion. It is storytelling at its most vivid and manipulative. Opera seeps into popular consciousness and bleeds into other forms, sound-tracking TV shows, sports anthems, adverts, and films – where its music is often used as a shortcut to create a heightened emotional tension at climactic moments. Those big moments in opera are usually the ones that deal most directly in the big human themes: life, love, death, loss, passion, joy, anger – but opera can be subtle as well as showy.
Most of us never attended one, furthermore, so many seem to think that OPERA is only a thing for the ELITE and the RICH, nothing can be further from the truth!
“Whether you’re a live music lover, a visual artist, a history buff, a strictly-in-the-shower singer, a binge-watcher, a social butterfly, a bookworm, a fashionista, a storyteller, an athlete – the list goes on – there truly is something for everyone to enjoy in opera.

Most people, when they think of technology, immediately think of advanced forms of tools, and certainly, the Greek roots of the word “technology” mean “systematic treatment of art or craft,” which tends to suggest tools or some sort. Technology is outstanding, a simple hammer is a technology.
Few Examples of technologies:
c. 1.2 mya years ago: Stone tools, Acheulean tools were produced during the Lower Palaeolithic era across Africa and much of West Asia, South Asia, East Asia, and Europe, and are typically found with Homo erectus remains.
Technology is helping them introduce more audiences to art: … Technology is also helping arts organizations extend their impact, far beyond a one-time performance or event: The internet and digital media provide an amazing opportunity for arts organizations to extend the impact of the arts.
The fact that technology started to rise during that era made the emergence of new mediums much easier. Artists started transitioning from being painters and sculptures that used paint and cement into digital artists and 3D artists, using imaging software and different materials to create works of art.
“The arrival of Virtual-Reality, Augmented-Reality, and Mixed-Reality technologies is shaping a new environment where physical and virtual objects are integrated at different levels. Due to the development of portable and embodied devices, together with highly interactive, physical-virtual connections, the customer experience the landscape is evolving into new types of hybrid experiences.”
No one person invented the cinema. However, in 1891 the Edison Company in the USA successfully demonstrated a prototype of the Kinetoscope, which enabled one person at a time to view moving pictures. The first to present projected moving pictures to a paying audience (i.e. cinema) was the Lumière brothers in December 1895 in Paris.
At first, the films were very short, sometimes only a few minutes or less. They were shown at fairgrounds and music halls or anywhere a screen could be set up and a room darkened. Subjects included local scenes and activities, views of foreign lands, short comedies, and events considered newsworthy.
The films were accompanied by lecturers, music, and a lot of audience participation—although they did not have synchronized dialogue, they were not ‘silent’ as they are sometimes described.
