In this paper, we outline the conception, design and performance of a contemporary opera at MediaCityUK (MCUK) in September 2012 and its simultaneous streaming to nearby digital screens. We evaluate the project's success as measured by a mix of qualitative and quantitative methods during the rehearsals and the performance at MCUK. As one of the few social studies of contemporary classic music in Britain, our practice-led research on how this contemporary opera and its audience at the premiere sheds light on how to develop new audiences through employing new digital technologies.
