Sir John In Love – In Pictures

Here are some pictures from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland “Sir John In Love” opera production.  Firstly here are a few behind the scenes photos that I managed to grab 🙂

I managed to take these pictures after each costume change for “Sir John In Love”

Some of the  cast in costume and ready to go.

I am sure I will not be alone in saying a big thank you to the designers Guiseppe and Emma Belli for creating the stunning stage sets and for setting the mood with the fabulous costumes.  I found this great stop motion video created by Stuart Leech of the stage and sets being constructed by the RCS workshop staff at Spiers Lock.

The following pictures are copyright of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland ( KK Dundas ) and appear on their Flickr page. I have tried to include a good selection of their images to help you get a sense of the production as it has been so much fun to be part of it.

The opera was fabulous to be part of and judging by the review in the “The Herald” newspaper the audience enjoyed it too 🙂

I have also included an audio interview with head of Opera at the RCS Timothy Dean that a fellow fourth year B Mus student Max Fane recorded.

Update : here is a lovely explanation of the story along with a fabulous four star review by bachtrach check it out http://bachtrack.com/review-sir-john-in-love-royal-conservatoire-glasgow-may-2015

  1. Thanks you som much Charlotte bring us in the backstage world of Opera ! I think that it’s a place were one day my flamingos will make a trip….:-) All the best for you !!

    1. I read articles about why tickets cost so much to see performance art, but I think when you see how much work goes into everything from the design to the orchestra and everything in between it starts to make sense.

      1. Sound, light, design, orchestra, singers, evrybody works many hours for make a nice performance. It’s the same for all arts. It’s the same for my pictures. There is travel, shoots, création……For 1 i can use 50 or more hours.

    1. It’s been great working with this cast of talented performers several students are moving on this year so it’s our last opportunity to see them in action.

  2. Very informative post, and the stop motion video was great – lets you realise just how much work went into the production.

  3. As a lifelong thespian, I am over the moon excited that you gave us this inside scoop! I can about taste the energy and am convinced that regardless of the role one plays in this production, no matter which side of the curtain, a good time will be had! Brava!

  4. Absolutely stunning. I wish I could have been there to see it! Such a creative setting and costumes for the story. And you deserve every compliment for having time to take pictures after costume changes–I always had difficulty just getting back on the stage in time!

    Best regards,

    Cate

  5. What a great insight to the stage production end, I am in awe of all the work!

    Kindest regards, Darlene

    1. I love stage production, my flatmate is a scenic carpenter so I see how exhausted he gets at show time. Great to be able to share the video.

      1. Hi Charlotte! First of all , you look absolutely Gorgeous….. No matter what you changed into. I’ve never been to an Opera Show before but the pictures are really beautiful and I can say by the way you smiled in all of the photos that you really had a wonderful time. I wish I could’ve been there because I know your performance was even better.
        Best Wishes to you , Fredrick Halcrombe

  6. Fantastic post Charlotte! I loved the photos – yours and the Flickr ones – the stop-motion video was so interesting and so was the interview. Wow! I am now following Les Sirenes on Facebook. Hope the concert on Thursday went well. The reviews look good.

    1. It was a lovely concert at City Halls with the Scottish Symphony Orchestra, such a shame we didn’t get any photographs 😊. I’ve seen a great review by Bachtrack today that I’ve updated on the post.
      My best wishes
      Charlotte
