Future voices of digital opera: re-imagining the diva

Julie's first meditation on the new role(s)/identities and function(ality) of the digital diva is published in a special edition of International Journal of Performance Arts & Digital Media.  A longer artistic manifesto is currently in development.

This article seeks to re-imagine the identity and role of the diva within a future realm of digital opera. Staged in three acts, the article presents some of the obstacles that obscure a radical rethinking of the opera diva; it also signposts recent practice and ‘cyberpositive’ thinking that might act as an inspiration and catalyst for the evolution of new dramaturgy, composition and performance practices.
