After a long COVID induced brake "Volksoper Wien", Vienna's second largest opera house,
celebrated a sparkling reopening on May 21st with "Land des Lächelns" (Land of the smiles) from Franz Lehár.
The play about lovers across different cultures experienced a true triumphal procession through the theaters of Europe after its premiere in Berlin in October 1929: by the end of 1930, the operetta had already had almost 200 productions.
Volksoper used zactrack smart to track principals and dancers in 3D during the evening. Various moving lights in the portal truss are used to follow the actors. As a repertoire house the theater performs a different play every night. Ease of use, versatility and robustness are the major factors to trust in zactrack technology.
Stay tuned! More premiers will come shortly!
