The Pirates Of Penzance

The Pirates

On Monday 15th October, club members were invited to photograph Marton Operatic Society’s dress rehearsal of The Pirates Of Penzance which is being staged at the Lowther Pavilion in Lytham.  This was an excellent opportunity to practice some photography under the difficult conditions of stage lighting which present exposure and colour problems.  Plus we got to enjoy the performance for free. Unfortunately there was no opportunity for photographing the characters off stage, but the purpose of the evening was for the Operatic Society to run their dress rehearsal, and as it was very generous of them to invite us as guests, we obviously had to fit around their schedule.

A selection of images from various photographers is presented below, showcasing the entire performance.

More information on the Operatic Society is available at the Marton Operatic Society website.
