Review – Cirque du Soleil’s Amaluna, Royal Albert Hall, 11 January 2017

I was lucky enough to be accredited to photograph Cirque du Soleil’s Amaluna last year here at the Royal Albert Hall. It was one of the most impressive performances I’ve ever seen and was a completely different shoot to the type I’m used to. So I jumped at the chance of shooting it again this year. Many of the artists have changed but most of the scenes were the same with mesmerising trapeze and high wire artists like the one above performing high above the stage at great speed with no safety wires.

This year we had the option of shooting from lower down in front of the stage or up at the same spot I’d taken last year. I therefore decided on the closer spot which was nice to get a different and more dramatic perspective but I think last year’s shots possibly worked out better in the main for being that little bit further back. Still, another amazing show!
