Commedia Corner

A fellow super, John Martin, takes these fantastic studio portraits of performers in some of the operas; this is an example of his work, as translated poorly thru my Verizon phone. The original pics are 8 x 10 and gorgeous.

He sets up a mini-studio in the Opera House basement canteen with all professional equipment and lighting and helps get the right poses.

I have been loving every minute of "Rigoletto." I will hate to see it end! Our Gilda, Mary Dunleavy, is an extroardinary artist and a very nice person-- abducting her has been one of the highlights of my supering career...

Mr. Martin is good, isn't he, though setting up his professional studio in the canteen strikes me as a little presumptious. But no matter. The photos are awesome.

This is wonderful. Wish I could see them all. Rigoletto is one opera I have never seen. Wish I were there!
