In January I took the rehearsal photographs for Verdi’s opera Aida which was performed at the Royal Albert Hall. It was one of my more chilly shoots (three cheers for large warehouse studios), but it was great to have the opportunity to photograph the singers in such a dynamic space.
Soprano Catrin Aur performing as High Priestess.
Directorial notes from the show’s director, Stephen Medcalf.
It’s hard to find a good baritone these days, so David Kempster is kept under lock and key while performing as Amonasro.
