“We provided other opportunities for people to get to know about the opera and to engage in conversations around Bliss,” says Duthie.
“We went to great effort to get that Making of on air before the curtain went up on ABC2 Live.
“Having the arts gateway and being able to rollout all of these different entry points for a work is pretty exciting and we’re not going to abandon that just because of the numbers.”
Duthie says the broadcast will be repeated at another time on ABC1.
“There will be other opportunities for an audience to come to it and by the time it gets a repeat it would have travelled around the country.”
