Ready to be shaken, stirred and surprised? We promise to inspire you. 

The Opera Beyond Conference is a new and creative meeting place, a playground in the overlapping territory between arts and technology. 

It’s a fountain of new ideas and knowledge for the professionals, creators and artists of all media and arts. The event will explore technologies such as virtual and augmented reality, artificial intelligence, projection mapping, and spatial sound – the very latest in audio, visual, and spatial art.

World-leading arts and technology wizards and visionaries will come together at the Opera House in Helsinki for a two-day seminar of keynote speeches, inspiration and knowledge-sharing. We promise both ample opportunities for networking and a rich array of exciting ideas to take home with you. 

The Opera Beyond Conference First Session in spring 2019 was the start of an unstoppable tidal wave. The Second Session from 25 to 26 May 2020 will be even bigger. Save the date, book your flight and step beyond the ordinary.

The programme of the event will be published and ticket sales will start soon. To stay tuned and to grab our early bird offer, sign up for our newsletter
