A New Approach to Surtitling

  • Partner Panthea
  • Year 2018

Surtitling is the art of projecting translations above a stage during a theatre or opera performance, in synchronisation with the actors.

Thanks to the Foundation, a collaboration between the theater of Vidy-Lausanne and the European leader Panthea was born. The pilot project involved testing connected smartglasses offering a new way of surtitling performances on stage.

PANTHEA is the European leader of surtitling solutions for performing arts. It is the only company that offers complete services in this field. In the past years the company provided surtitles for about 2.000 performances a year and welcomed guests of more than 60 nationalities. PANTHEA is now running projects with smartglasses in several cities across Europe, including Paris, Lyon, Berlin and London.
