Whether you are contracted to record a live opera or theatrical performance for release, broadcast, or archival purposes. It is crucial to make the technology as invisible as possible as not to distract the live audience or interrupt the flow of the performers without compromising the sound. This tutorial will cover what is required to achieve this balance. Topics such as technical walk troughs, working with other production staff, microphone selection, planning input lists, choosing gear, setting up your recording system in a remote location, redundancy, the usage boundary miking, hiding lavalier microphones, strategic miking in cramped orchestra pits, post-production, etc. Following this tutorial, the participant will gain a better understanding of the priorities and requirements for recording a staged operatic or theatrical production. This tutorial will be presented by a Grammy-nominated recording engineer with 30 years of experience who specializes in opera, classical recording, and remote live radio broadcast.
