BASE Entertainment has announced plans to bring late Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Roy Orbison - as well renowned opera singer Maria Callas - onto the world stage as digital recreations.

This brand new technology will display Orbison and Callas performing full-length concerts with digitally remastered versions of their hit songs. The company claims the holographic performers will be able to interact with the audience and other musicians on stage.

It will combine theatrical productions with holograms and laser technology so the musicians can perform onstage alongside a live orchestra. The hologram uses Epson's Pro L-Series laser projection which has a long life span and shows bright images.

The first show of In Dreams: Roy Orbison in Concert will be April 2018 in the UK. Orbison will play with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Tickets for UK and Australia tour dates are on sale.

Callas in Concert will debut in Tokyo in May 2018.

BASE Hologram plans to reveal other projects in upcoming months.
