Lessons From Live Opera In 2020: The Movie

Wednesday, 31st March 2021

This part of our Learning From 2020 tools for artists and producers.



Tête à Tête safely co-hosted 19 different live productions with live audiences between July and September 2020 with The Cockpit, including a DCMS pilot for the return to indoor performance.


We’ve created this short film in the hope that others may be able to profit from our experience. Featuring people from every part of the Festival, from programming to performing to PR, it includes top tips on bringing shows to life online and in-person, keeping audiences safe and engaged, and taking care of everyone in your team.


We hope this helps everyone in the sector as we return to live performance once again. We are very grateful to the Paul Hamlyn Foundation for the support, nurture and encouragement we had in making this film.
