BLOG POST: Oxford Operatic Society presents ‘Sunset Boulevard’

At the weekend I headed down to the Oxford Playhouse to photograph the dress rehearsal of Oxford Operatic Society’s latest production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Sunset Boulevard. Everyone in the cast and crew have put their heart and soul into this show and the result is a treat for the eyes and ears.

One of the challenges of theatre photography is in capturing the experience of an audience member in images only, which of course is only a small constituent of a stage musical. I’d not seen the show before, however knowing the plot of the show and the musical numbers is really crucial in understanding which expressions of the characters needed to shine out in my photography, so a little research and Spotify listening was in order! I also felt the intensity of the performances was really helped by the minimalist set and classy costumes.

If you can make it, I thoroughly recommend heading down to the Playhouse to see the show, which runs until Saturday 14th November

For the cast and crew, downloadable images and CDs of the full set will be available very soon!
