Rehearsal of the "Joseph"

Last weekend I had a really fun assignment shooting a rehearsal of the musical "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. It will be performed May 13th and 14th in Freising by a cast of almost 300 people.

What I saw was breathtaking - a stunning performance. Even though the performers are all laymen and -women, the choreographer, director, voice coaches, etc. are all pros working pro bono - and it shows.

Here are some impressions, you can find more on my Flickr! page in the Joseph set.

Angry brothers shout at the Narrator

Josephs brothers and the narrator practice dance moves.

Colorful children.

In case you have been looking carefully and feel confused: there are two different narrators to cover all four performances. :)
