An awesome show opened the 2018 BBC Proms
Digital design, art, music and history come together in this spectacular curtain raiser for the BBC Proms.
Check out Five Telegrams, featuring visuals projected onto the exterior of the Royal Albert Hall by the award-winning team at 59 Productions, with new music written by Anna Meredith as the soundtrack. In the centenary year of the First World War, the piece draws on contemporary themes inspired by the communication infrastructure of the First World War.
All the more impressive, the music was played live inside in the Royal Albert Hall and was kept perfectly in sync with the external projections! Five Telegrams marked the start of the BBC Proms, an eight-week annual summer season of concerts held in London, UK.
