This shoot was an unexpected treat for a Friday afternoon. Simon Stephen's new play features a mezzo soprano who belts out all the big arias from Bizet's Carmen. And that's what I was lucky enough to watch being rehearsed down at the Almeida. I'll also be shooting the production for this one and it promises to be a highly theatrical event – which always makes for a good shoot.
The production is directed by Michael Longhurst and features Sharon Small, John Light, Noma Dumezweni, Jack Farthing, Katie West, and mezzo Viktoria Vizin.
