Project Description

A  selection of my images from the dress rehearsal for the Canadian Opera Company’s 2020 production of The Barber of Seville. I originally photographed this performance in 2015, so this is a return engagement for both of us. Love it – it’s visually striking and all the performances were great. The audience ate it up!

Sadly, I was unable to photograph the subsequent production of Hansel & Gretel, and now the balance of the season has been cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
