With HCI venturing more into designing for the cultural and entertainment domain, researchers are engaging with experimental designs, and technical interventions to understand how to best consider new technologies for this domain. This paper focuses on audience experience. It presents approaches as to how the HCI community can better support audiences' encounters with deeply engaging peak experiences that are intense, memorable and personally engaging experiences in live performances. We do this by studying tingle experiences encountered during opera performances. Besides contributing to advancing experience design, this work adds to current understanding of liveness, offers ideas about the role of digital technologies to support live performances, and general insights towards designing for audience experiences.
