More photos from our rehearsals, this time in COLOR. (More can be found on my Flickr page)

ANGOLA, the center of all the action

Looking in from the wings, astonished at the lights and angles

The Tower on the side of the stage, gloroiusly lit

Philip Cutlip as the "Dead Man Walking

    These photos are amazing! You don’t see nearly as much color from the audience (at least not all at once). I had the privilege of seeing DMW at the dress rehearsal, and liked it so much I bought two tickets and brought my opera-wary mother to see it. She was so moved, she cried through a good half hour of it. Thank you so much for your performances and your pictures, they are both incredible.

    We just came home from our local theater production of Comte Ory from the Met. You were terrific! Thanks loads. BTW, We are opposed to the death penalty, too.

We need you to remind us what empathy is by taking us deep into the hearts of those who are, God forbid, different than us – so that we can recapture the hope of not only living in peace with each other, but THRIVING together in a vibrant way where each of us grows in wonder and joy.
