Phantoms on the Staircase
Photo and caption by Dan Molino
This picture was taken during ground breaking run of Phantom of the Opera the University of Kentucky's Opera theater at the historic Lexington Opera House. Looking down from the top of the grand spiral staircase, the surreal picture turns average people who are descending the staircase into phantoms. I could easily imagine the Phantom haunting these gold leaf covered halls. Seeing Phantom performed in an actual opera house by actual opera people added to the feeling of realness to the night. So did the "phantoms" in this picture.
