Behind the Scenes

Follow us behind the scenes: we shine the spotlight on what happens before the curtain goes up, hearing from all those people who are essential to the success of a concert, opera or dance performance but rarely get to be the centre of attention. From lighting designers, sound engineers and photographers, to wig makers, page turners, event managers and instrument tuners, scroll down to read articles and watch videos that reveal the magic happening backstage.
