The Barber of Seville becomes the first opera to be filmed with Sonys 4K High Dynamic Range technology

After shooting the first real 4K HDR test at the 2015 TIM Cup final between Juventus and Lazio, Sony and DBW Communication have achieved another important technological first, this time in the context of opera music. Gioacchino Rossini's masterpiece, the comic opera "The Barber of Seville", has become the first opera in the world to be filmed in the 4K High Dynamic Range (HDR) format. The production was staged last July at the Teatro Regio in Turin, among the world's most important opera houses and one of the largest and most historic in Italy. For the shoot, Sony's PMW-F55 cameras were used in live mode, positioned at eight filming points and all equipped with 4K Prime Lenses the same as the ones used by director Jacques Audiard for his most recent film "Dheepan", which won the Palme d'Or at the last Cannes Film Festival.
