Welcome to the website for the De Montfort University Digital Opera Research Group. The DORG was founded in 2012 by Professors Hugill and Emmerson and Dr Vear. It is a partnership between the Institute Of Creative Technologies and the Music, Technology and Innovation Research Centre.
The DORG investigates all aspects of digital opera, using analytical, musicological and creative research methods. "Digital Opera" is deemed to include works that self-define as such and digital works that are conceived on an operatic scale or with operatic intentions. It is a precept of the DORG that the art-form "opera" is being substantially reinvented in the digital age. Our research concerns the nature and consequences of this reinvention.
