Immersive theatre experience goes inside Michelangelo’s masterpieces
POSTED 04 Oct 2018 . BY Luke Cloherty
Marco Balich, who has previously orchestrated opening and closing ceremonies for the Olympics, has created a new immersive theatre show that lets the audience step inside the works of Michelangelo.

Giudizio Universale: Michelangelo and the Secrets of the Sistine Chapel is now on show in Rome, with video projections that go inside the masterpieces, making them come to life through animation, dance, and stagecraft.

The first scene sees Balich open up Michelangelo’s David, taking visitors on a journey through the artist’s professional life and work, including his famous Sistine Chapel ceiling painting and the painstaking work undertaken to create it.

The immersive experience is staged in nine different languages, with voice acting headlined by Hollywood actress Susan Sarandon and Italian movie star Pierfrancesco Favino. The score has been composed by British rock star Sting.

Giudizio Universale has been supported by the Vatican, which donated high resolution imagery at a reduced rate to Balich. The attraction has been made possible a private investment of €9m (US$10.4m, £8m) and is on available to experience at Rome’s former symphony hall – Auditorium Conciliazione.
