Invisible Cities is the world’s first large scale opera for wireless headphones. The L.A. Dance Project and Sennheiser are collaborating to stage its world premiere on Saturday, October 19th at the largest railway terminal in the western United States – Los Angeles’ iconic Union Station.
By using wireless headphones from Sennheiser, audience members will be intimately connected to the storyline, while having the ability to roam freely as the opera moves throughout the terminal.
Invisible Cities is unconventional in many ways. For example, there is no opera house and no assigned seats — audience members are not restricted in their movement and encouraged to roam freely.
Sennheiser’s wireless technology will convey both dialog and music to listeners. Performers will be outfitted with Sennheiser wireless microphones and attendees will use Sennheiser’s RS 120 wireless consumer headphones for a complete, intimate audio experience.
