I shot the Goucher College Opera Workshop’s performance of “The Mikado” or “The Town Of Titipu” last night. Throughout my years at Goucher, I photographed plenty of these performances, but this was the first that I’ve shot since graduating.
It was nice to be back, and as I watched and made pictures, I kept thinking about those four years. Had I been shooting this last year, I would have gone straight to the library or the newspaper office after it was over for a late night/early morning full of work. It’s quite a difference a year makes.
This production was full of opportunities for great pictures. I haven’t shot anything that was this visually exciting in awhile, so this was a nice jolt of energy that my shooting has needed of late.
For current Goucher Students in the thick of the end of semester work, I strongly suggest you take a two hour study break tonight and go watch ‘The Mikado.’ I trust you’ll leave feeling refreshed and energized.
