Backstage at the Opera

Got a call last week to shoot a dress rehearsal up at the Met for

The goal was to try and get photographs of soprano Anna Netrebko in costume. Access and available light were limited but I managed to get a couple of cool snaps. I've never been to an Opera before so the whole experience was awesome..

Here's some outtakes I like..

I did get an escort backstage after this photo and it was insane. It goes back like 5 times deeper than what you can see in the front and there were hundreds of people back there making stuff and rehearsing and goofing off.

Whoa- those outtakes are stunners. Makes me feel like I'm missing out on something by having no interest at all in opera whatsoever...
