Behind The Curtain

"Yorkshire-based photographer Tom Arber spent a week in residence with Opera North in September 2014, during preparations for a new production of Verdi’s La Traviata.

Granted full backstage access for the project, Tom’s images lovingly detail the final stage rehearsals in the run up to opening night, giving a glimpse of rarely seen moments on and off stage, in dressing rooms and backstage corridors, from principal opera singers to costume dressers and stage technicians."
