This play will take 3,5 hours without a break I was told. If you want to leave before the end, please take the emergency exit since we have an event downstairs.

This series is from my first ballet shooting: Tchaikowsky´s The Nutcracker at the Deutsche Oper Berlin. And I really enjoyed this assignment. The performance was great, the opera house is great and the people were friendly and things went smoothly.
