Behind the scenes of 20 Shots of Opera

Backstage

Take a look behind the camera of 20 Shots of Opera, Irish National Opera’s film series of 20 short operas by as many composers. Meet the creative minds behind this monumental project that unites 120 people in their ambitious desire to explore the possibilities of the art form in a digital format.

Artistic director of INO Fergus Sheil and series director Hugh O’Conor reflect on the extraordinary genesis of 20 Shots of Opera - from their commission to the film shoot. As soprano Daire Halpin affirms, 'Now is the time to experiment and bring along new audiences because people have a spare five minutes.'
