Go behind the scenes with Billy Zane at a rehearsal for The Sound of Music at Lyric Opera.


Lyric Opera, Rehearsal Room 200

Being in the cultural thick of things is nothing new to professional photographer Todd Rosenberg. As the much-in-demand shooter for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago and The Second City (to name just a few), Rosenberg is frequently granted privileged access to some of Chicago’s most illustrious artistic institutions, which is how he was able to take this candid of Billy Zane rehearsing for his role as Captain von Trapp in Lyric’s recent production of The Sound of Music. “One of the perks of my job is getting that behind-the-scenes look at things as they slowly take shape,” says Rosenberg. “It’s great watching the progress from start to finish. Often it’s not until the last rehearsal that all the pieces are in place.” Sounds like the best seats in the house aren’t center orchestra, but behind the curtains.
