This is Andrew Haveron, concertmaster of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, projected last night out of his seat and displayed on the roof of the opera house. The event was a Visions of Vienna concert, promoted by the Austrian tourist authority, and it went down well with a crowd of thousands milling around the harbour, listening to the music and watching the images change.
To spice up the Strausses, they added an occasional Klimt.
From the press release:
Tony David Cray, Head of Recording and Broadcast at the Sydney Opera House, used 14 cameras inside the Concert Hall – including five lipstick cameras inside the Orchestra – to film the performance, which was projected live on the sails by Technical Direction Company. More than 3,000 people attended a free public event hosted by the Vienna Tourist Board at Campbells Cove in the Rocks to watch the spectacle on the sails of the Sydney Opera House.
