Behind the scenes: 'In Parenthesis' from WNO
In Parenthesis is a brand new opera from the WNO is coming this Spring, and we were asked to create the imagery - take a look through our behind-the-scenes shots!
In Parenthesis is Iain Bell's adaptation of the epic poem by Welsh poet, writer and artist David Jones, and it's a totally original and new opera that's showing in Cardiff (13th May to 3rd June), London (29th June to 1st July) and Birmingham (10th June) this year.
We began creating advertising imagery that reflected the strange, dream-like Mametz Wood in the story. Elements included: a model, Forest Fawr, lots of twigs, an authentic WW1 soldier's uniform, and warm coats for the crew. Brrr...

We created the imagery for several nation-wide upcoming WNO operas, including The Barber of Seville, Cavalleria rusticana & Pagliacci, The Marriage of Figaro, and Figaro Gets a Divorce. See what's on at the WNO right here!
