Leipzig Opera House
The stage is set up to give an audience the best possible view of a performance, while likewise affording the actors a view of virtually every face in the audience, which must be overwhelming for some when the spotlights come on.
But there's something beautiful about that window full of waiting faces that must likewise captivate an actor, because many of the theaters photographed by Klaus Frahm are quite nice to look at whether you're the actor or the audience.
Magravial Opera House, Bayreuth
Klaus Frahm's images take us beyond the fourth wall in a whole new way, showing us what actors see when they walk out on the stage and grace the public with their performance.
