Against the Grain Theatre, Toronto’s visionary chamber opera company, has always asked questions about what it means to be an opera company in the 21st century. With this project, the company begins a comprehensive digital research project examining online trends and behaviours of opera audiences towards live streamed performances. This research will inform future initiatives.
Digital Opera Research and Intelligence Study (“DORIS”) consists of a national audience survey and discussions with international experts in the field of performing arts streaming. A final research paper in English and French will be available for free on Against the Grain’s website this spring, with ongoing blog updates leading up to its release.
