Lara Cappelli Photographer


As part of an ongoing collaboration with the Royal Opera House in London, I created a series of images advertising Alice’s Adventures Under Ground, a brand new opera piece written and directed by Antony Mcdonald, with music by Gerald Barry.

The images showcase the frantic, surreal and light-heartedness nature of the operatic treatment of Lewis Carroll’s story and were used on social media to promote the show. With a particular emphasis on capturing the dynamism of the piece, the images showcase members of the cast in various costumes and characters that they play during the show. In order to isolate the subjects and give the stunning costumes and make-up enough relevance, the images were shot against a backdrop, while still maintaining some of the surrounding space: the ultimate aim was to create an engaging series and offer a “behind the scenes” and less formal approach.
