I’m also the Ballett Zurich’s backstage photographer for special events at the Zurich Opera House. One such event was the Dance Festival Steps 2014, which showed three premières called “Notations”. I’ve documented the dress rehearsal, from warm-up, to make-up and the actual show. Like always, there was a positive and wonderful atmosphere. Below are a few impressions of the event.
Another special event was the two-days shooting at the opera last week. We’ve built up a photography studio in a trailer, right at the main entrance of the the opera house to portray people passing by for a poster that advertises the live-broadcast of the opera Rigoletto on June 21st to the public on the big square outside the opera. I took pictures of 400 people, all of them will appear on the poster and they will all get one as a souvenir.
The last three images of the following impressions show the trailer in fron of the opera house and the fantastic team I had to take all those portraits. Enjoy!
