This winter, White Cloth Gallery in Leeds hosts Behind the Curtain, an exhibition of new photography exposing the hidden world behind-the-scenes at one of the UK’s major opera companies. Yorkshire-based photographer Tom Arber spent a week in residence with Opera North in September 2014, as the company prepared for a new production of Verdi’s La traviata. Arber’s images show 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.
The full collection of images can be seen at White Cloth Gallery in Leeds, from 26 November until 1 February 2015.
