We have great news! In 2020 ARTMIX team took part in international media-art contest Digital Opera 2.0. We applied together with other 30 teams and presented our project in July. Our main idea was to think over a usual approach to the well-known Russian patriotic opera “Life for the Tzar” by M.I.Glinka
A hero beyond time
We drew attention to the aria of Ivan Susanin. It has an expressive and genuine drama. The task that we set ourselves was to bring Susanin to a new level of perception – timeless and without reference to the country. The opera singer for SUSANIN 2020 performance was a young basso Miroslav Molchanov accompanied by our digital art set and Tavrichesky Symphony Orchestra.
The contest is aimed to identify and encouragу young artists to generate contemporary high-tech creative solutions in the direction and design of opera performances. The jury includes world opera stars, famous opera directors and artists.
SUSANIN 2020 art team:
Egor Zvezdin and Margo Bor — idea and art-production;
Dina Orlova — concept and idea, stage director;
Morgan Korolkov — media-artist.
The final of the competition took place at the venue of the Cinema and Concert Hall of the St. Petersburg State Institute of Film and Television on 24-25 of October 2020. Our team was mentioned as a talented band with great vision and ability to incorporate our product into the whole opera stage.
