Coming out of my work with The Minnesota Opera, I have branched out to photograph performances of many kinds. Some of those photographs are worth presenting here.

The Minnesota Opera
Photographs from two seasons, 2000-2002.
|The Koch International Children's Festival, which I photographed for the organizer, The Ordway Center for the Performing Arts, in St. Paul, MN, included a number of wonderful performances. Photographs from some of those performances are presented here.|
In July 2002 my
wife and I visited eastern Europe. While in Budapest I encountered the 7th
European Youth Theatre ensemble in a number of performances in the city's central
square. I took a number of photos of several of the individual performance groups,
and the best show youthful intensity and beauty at their best.
I sent a CD containing all the photos (there were over 500 of them) to the organizer of the event. Some time later I received the following gracious note from Josef Hollos in Vienna:
|In August 2001 I offered to photograph a unique performance of Mozart's Die Zauberflöte [The Magic Flute] performed in the pow-wow grounds of the Kalispel Indian Reservation in Usk, in eastern Washington State. They called the production "Shared Flute," denoting the unique contribution of the Kalispels to the performance. Somehow, although I took hundreds of photos of the dress rehearsal and the first night's performance, and shared those photos with members of the perforance company, I never added any of them here. This small collection (click the photo at left) makes amends for that oversight.|
|Performances of the American National Ballet. (New performance added: October 2004)|
