Ridiculously excited to have been asked to shoot a new production of Peter Shaffer's Amadeus at the National Theatre. I remember seeing the original production at the Olivier in 1980 (!) Mad to think that I'll be shooting the same play in the same room, some 36 years later (!)
Michael Longhurst directs, fresh from the epic They Drink it in the Congo at the Almeida. I'll be posting those production shots in a couple of days. I've shot a few shows for Michael now and I'll say this - he doesn't half give a photographer plenty to point a camera at. Really looking forward to seeing what he has in mind for this one.
Lucian Msamati plays Salieri - can't wait to see who'll he be up against.
