OPERA FOR EVERYONE

New app makes opera accessible for more people

RESULT

Together with the Swedish Royal Opera, HiQ has developed a solution that makes the opera more accessible to everyone.

With an app you can listen to a translated text of the performance through the telephone earphones. You can also choose a commentary providing an audio description of the performance. The digital solution is discreet and simple for everyone to use – not just those with visual impairment or dyslexia, for example. The solution will quite simply make opera more accessible to everyone.

MISSION

It lies in the Swedish Opera's mission to reach out to an even wider audience. This include a continuous work to reach new audiences and do live performances accessible for more people.

“Opera is for everyone – it is part of our cultural heritage. Our mission is to open our doors and we need to open them even wider. Digitalisation gives us more ways of welcoming people in than ever before. The app is a very good tool to help make the Opera more accessible to everyone,” says Louise Stehn, Sales Manager of the Royal Swedish Opera.

SOLUTION

HiQ and the Royal Swedish Opera have developed an app that enables the audience to listen to a translated text of the performance through their telephone earphones. Listeners can also choose a commentary providing an audio description of the performance. The service was launched on Friday 29th of September during the performance of Leoš Janáček’s emotional opera, Jenůfa.

The digital solution is discreet and simple for everyone to use – not just those with visual impairment or dyslexia, for example. The solution will quite simply make opera more accessible to everyone.
