Rehearsal photography for ‘Aida’

April 9th, 2012 by Helen

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.

It’s hard to find a good baritone these days, so David Kempster is kept under lock and key while performing as Amonasro.

The show ran from February 23–March 11 and received some great reviews.
