Candide dress rehearsal

This week Cambridge University Opera Society and BATS perform Candide by Leonard Bernstein at Fitzpatrick Hall, Queens’ College. The operette is directed by Emma Wilkinson. She also directed Don Giovanni last year, which was the first dress rehearsal I ever photographed. Here is a selection of photos from the evening.
