Wayne McGregor | Teatro alla Scala and Royal Opera House Dido and Aeneas Animation for Opera Performance

Hotbox Studios worked in collaboration with director Wayne McGregor, Teatro alla Scala and The Royal Opera House in producing 3D animation and visual effects for Henry Purcell's opera Dido and Aeneas.

Wayne McGregor's new interpretation of Dido and Aeneas was first performed at Teatro alla Scala (Milan, Italy). Following the successful run of performances in Italy the opera was then brought to the UK; performed as part of a double bill at The Royal Opera House (London, UK). The opera was also broadcast on BBC 4 television and BBC Radio 3.

The animated unicorn sequence created by Hotbox Studios for the opera is shown at the end of the opera as a representation of passing from one world to the next.

Collaborating on Dido and Aeneas were Christopher Hogwood (Conductor), Wayne McGregor (Direction), Hildegard Bechtler (Scenes), Fotini Dimou (Costumes), Lucy Carter (Lighting Design), Mark Hatchard (Animation and Visual Effects).

We work closely with artists, directors and choreographers producing animation and visual effects for the fine arts and performing arts.
