As the first opera, SPI will now present Carmen on the FunBox UHD world channel and TV app that will be accessible to all viewers in 4K resolution. The Rome Opera House located in Italy introduced their opera performance to RAI in 2018 aiming to reach a wider international audience. This one-of-a-kind opera was captured live in 4K and will now be aired globally through SPI’s channel and TV app as SPI acquired worldwide TV and VOD rights.
In order to promote Italian operas, RAI created a project called All Opera that brings the best Italian operas in cinemas all over the world.
“We wanted to bring the best of the season from the greatest Italian theaters to the cinema in the world and partnering with SPI will expand our vision to at-home entertainment worldwide,” said Valentina Carrasca, stage director for Carmen.
“We are proud to announce our partnership with RAI to create our unique RAI-FUNBOX UHD experience that will feature the best Italian opera content captured in breathtaking 4K resolution to our worldwide platform. Our agreement with RAI will only enhance the wide array of content that SPI has to offer,” added Berk Uziyel, CEO at SPI International.
