The 50th Hong Kong Arts Festival: Laila in Hong Kong
A co-production of the Hong Kong Art Festival and the Finnish National Opera and Ballet (FNOB), Laila is an immersive and interactive opera composed by world-renowned Maestro Esa-Pekka Salonen. It is one of the highlight programs of the 50th Hong Kong Art Festival and incorporates Artificial Intelligence (AI), Virtual Reality (VR), video-projection mapping, 360 spatial sound and real-time sensors to offer a unique opera experience in the dome-shaped performance space.
Laila in Hong Kong reveals the process of putting together Laila, decoding the technologies behind it and demonstrating the artworks in the pop-up exhibition for the first time on screen. There will be a post-screening talk by the Laila Outreach and Ambassador, Keith Lam and Zeno Koo to share more stories behind Laila.
