Digital Opera


As 2023 is coming to a close, we want to traditionally sum up the most important events of the year for Digital Opera Saint-Petersburg.

We have been actively involved in socially significant projects aimed at engaging youth in art and promoting modern technologies on the stages of Russian theatres. We held meetings, lectures, and master classes to inspire people to enjoy art and to open new horizons.
We are proud of all the achievements of this year and grateful to everyone who has been with us. With your support, we have moved forward, charged with energy and inspiration.
