Deloitte Ignite 15

Royal Opera House


59 Productions have been invited to transform the Royal Opera House into a spectacular piece of visual art to mark the opening of the annual Deloitte Ignite Festival.

4, 5 and 6 September, every half an hour from 8.30pm to 10.45pm each evening, the full facade of the Royal Opera House visible from Covent Garden Piazza will become a vast canvas celebrating the building’s history from the 18th century to the present day, shining a spotlight on the rich world of creativity that flourishes here both on and off the stage.

This extraordinary time-travelling tale will be comprised of three short acts lasting a total of six minutes, weaving together bespoke projection-mapped animation and film footage. The specially curated score will feature extracts of Alcina, composed for Handel’s first season at the Theatre Royal (as the Royal Opera House was then known), the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Joby Talbot and the Queen of the Night’s breathtaking ‘Der Hölle Rache’ from Mozart’s The Magic Flute.
