fascinating glimpses of rarely-seen moments in the life of an opera company are revealed in a stunning new exhibition.

Photographer Tom Arber spent a week with Opera North in Leeds in September, as they prepared for a production of Verdi’s La Traviata.

The result is an intriguing mix of on-stage and behind-the-scenes pictures, plus snaps in dressing rooms and rehearsals, from principal opera singers to costume dressers and stage technicians.

Behind the Curtain is on at White Cloth Gallery in Leeds from November 26 to February 1.
