Creating an opera for a young audience with an artistic team composed of young artists in order to allow a generation of visually impaired or blind people to be among those who will discover the Un Barbier creation is one of the main missions of the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées.
What the visually impaired and blind audience will not be able to see during the performance will be described to them through headphones. They will picture the stage thanks to a Braille map of the setting and will be invited to touch the costumes.
This French adapted version was thought out with great enthusiasm so that everyone could experience or learn the pleasure of opera now more accessible, thanks to this device.
What is audio description? Learn about it on video!
The Théâtre des Champs-Elysées’ involvement continues by proposing a performance of Un Barbier with audio description and Accès Culture on Saturday, January 13th at 5 p.m*
Join us to offer more and more visually impaired children the possibility to come to the Théâtre and see musical shows!
