Sunday evening A Suitcase of Methods invited 10 audiences for a walk in Copenhagen just after the opera Der Freischutz by Carl Maria von Weber.
Inspired by the previous interviews with visitors and audiences at The Royal Danish Theatre A Suitcase of Methods are now focusing on the opera Der Freischutz by Carl Maria von Weber staged by Kasper Holten. It is not only played at the Opera but also live transmitted to more than 50 cinemas in Denmark the 25th of November.
Therefore we have designed four different research set-ups: We are testing the framing of the focus group in order to get knowledge about their actual experience at the Opera.
The three focus group interviews based on the experience in the Opera has three different settings: 1) Outside the institution 2) in the auditorium/at the stage and 3) in an ordinary meeting room at the Opera. All are taking place just after the performance.
The fourth audience research setup differs: it takes place after the live transmission of the opera in the foyer at the cinema Scala Svendborg.
Does the framing really matter when it comes to audience conversations? And how much does it matter?
We expect the report based on this study to be accessible in December.
