The State of Stage Photography

Kelley Rourke, Glimmerglass Opera’s dramaturg, recently directed me to the theater blog of The Guardian, where Andrew Haydon discusses the state of stage photography.  His post is a fascinating read, and the contributed comments are insightful.  

Glimmerglass has worked with several great photographers and photography interns, who have taken extremely beautiful and creative production shots. It is interesting to see which photographs are primarily used in the end. Many opinions and factors are considered when production photographs are chosen for publicity or other purposes, as many of the comments on Haydon’s blog suggest. Check out some recent Glimmerglass Opera production photographs on the company’s press site.  What do you think?
