Here is a selection of my photographs from the recent dress rehearsal of the Canadian Opera Company’s production of The Marriage of Figaro. It opened this past Thursday and runs through February 27 at the Four Seasons Centre. This is a lovely production, well lit, with some truly great performances – you can find a more detailed review by the Toronto Star here.

The challenge with this session had more to do with casting than anything technical, Unfortunately, Russell Braun (who plays The Count) was ill for the rehearsal. Gordon Binter, a fine performer from the COC Ensemble Studio, stepped in. This creates some challenges as far as promo images are concerned. Additional images came, I believe, from opening night and prior rehearsals.
