Live From The Underworld is a series of interactive live-stream performances featuring mythological avatars brought to life by realtime motion capture technology & live opera singers.

Welcome to the Underworld.

As the dynasty of Calliope comes to an end, all mortals are called forth to help shape the stories of the realm. Follow Eurydice in a journey of personal revelation as she must choose between reclaiming her heritage or reconnecting with her love.


Project History

In 2018 a team of digital and opera artists came together to ask “what would opera look like if it were invented today?”. From that initial question OrpheusVR, an interactive, choose-your-own-adventure, virtual-reality opera was born.

After completing the prototype in 2021, the OrpheusVR team started working in the digital live stream space, using realtime motion capture technology and computer avatars from the OrpheusVR world to create live, interactive operatic performances that can be streamed from any device.
