Opera

Clive Barda is renowned for his photographs of opera and has enjoyed long associations with many of the world’s leading opera houses:

  • Royal Opera House, Covent Garden
  • English National Opera
  • Welsh National Opera
  • Opera North
  • Glyndebourne.

Clive’s specialist knowledge of the opera field is matched by few photographers. Knowing each piece, he can anticipate and capture crucial moments and key characters, meaning his work is equally suited to being used in the press, brochures, or at the front of house.

Opera lighting is uniquely challenging for the photographer. As well as years of experience, Clive uses the latest digital cameras and works with leading experts on post processing techniques to deliver the very best image quality.
