Die Fledermaus [The Bat]
As in every year, in 2016 a major opera production took place at Düsseldorf’s Robert Schumann Hochschule in collaboration with the Deutsche Oper am Rhein. This year the operetta Die Fledermaus [The Bat] by Johann Strauß was produced. The operetta was performed five times, with a live multicam recording made of the first two performances on April 21 and 22, which were streamed live on the Internet.
The performances were recorded using the IMM video broadcasting van which features newly upgraded HD equipment. The broadcast van’s five camera systems and two additional unmanned cameras were used in the project.
Clemens Hörlbacher was the technical manager, Jonas Geyersberger the project manager and video mixer, and the audio engineer was Jannis Lehnert.
