Step to make performers belt their notes—just not for too long.
In these tight fiscal times, companies are struggling to get people to the opera. So Quebec tried something different -- it brought the opera to the people.
As part of Quebec's Festival d’Opéra, the Canadian French-language TV network TFO assembled a 12-note "Living Piano," with each note powered by a different performer. Each singer wore a vibrating bracelet that buzzed whenever his or her corresponding key was stepped on. Watch the result in this hilarious video, created by advertising company Lowe Roche for TFO.
