A view from the Gods - Behind the scenes of Love Beyond #3

With only days to go until the London premiere of Love Beyond at The SSE Arena Wembley, award-winning photojournalist Hazel Thompson visited the final week of cast rehearsals at The Backstage Centre to give us a unique glimpse behind, or above the scenes of work on the production – literally ‘A view from the Gods’.

Photo by Hazel ThompsonEverything about Love Beyond is big... the cast, the story, the music, the songs, the orchestra – even the venue – so to appreciate this, it helps to get a different perspective. Viewing the action on the floor from 20m up in ‘the Gods’ you definitely get a sense of how exciting the production will look when it comes to life on stage in only 3 days time.

The hard work is clearly paying off with every aspect of the production looking and sounding amazing.
