Vodafone Deutschland behind 5G AR glasses experience for German opera

Augmented reality glasses will connect to the audiences' smartphones, which will use 5G to deliver the content

Vodafone Deutschland is working with Deutsche Oper Am Rhein to provide audiences at Düsseldorf Opera House with an enhanced augmented reality experience during its upcoming performances of Die tote Stadt.

Audiences will be provided with augmented reality glasses which will display additional digital content and enhance what’s happening on stage, such as background information on the plot, biographies of the actors and animated overlays. “Our digital opera glasses combine the live experience and immersive technology to enable new, low-threshold access to the analogue world of music theatre,” said Professor Christoph Meyer, general manager of the Deutsche Oper am Rhein.

The audience will also be able to choose from several camera angles, including a view of the orchestra pit, while the glasses will also provide subtitles for those who require them.
