Opera Calling, !Mediengruppe Bitnik

Opera Calling is a hacking performance and installation initially created by Mediengruppe Bitnik as part of an exhibition at Cabaret Voltaire, Zurich in 2007 (9–26 May). The performance consisted of several bugs hidden in the auditorium of the Zurich Opera House that caused the transmission of live recordings of operas performed during this period to random telephone numbers of Zurich residents listed in the telephone book.
