Inside a 360-degree CGI theater in downtown San Francisco, a cast of 22 performers have joined up with an award-winning creative team to stage a unique production of Peter Pan. The theater, which gives the audience a multi-faceted experience of live action combined with complete surround computer graphics, is a world's first, according to representatives for the production.
Inside the white dome at San Francisco's Ferry Park, 15,000 square feet of hi-resolution video is immersing both the cast and audience in a CGI Neverland created using Maxon's Cinema 4D rendering software.
When Peter and Wendy fly to Neverland, the audience flies with them over 400 square miles of virtual London and beyond.
The preview shows are already under way in San Francisco. Peak shows begin May 8 and will run through the summer before leaving on a tour of the United States and eventually returning to London.
