Procol Harum in Wuppertal, April 2013

Open rehearsal official photography by Andre Scollick (2)


The choir, with Michael Ackermann (abundant, white hair) centre back

Geoff and his kit fit very neatly on that riser, with little space to spare

First glimpse of the 'Procol Mania' motif with which the symphonic players will eventually all be adorned

Plain-clothes violinists at work

From this angle there looks to be quite a lot of space for the dancers ... but their narrative requires them to pass
from one side of the stage to the other, through the minefield of Procol cabling etc

Three dancers in the air as Simple Sister plays ... it makes more sense than yesterday, when they weren't in costume

Procol take a bow with their terpsichorean counterparts before the interval

Over the choir's heads, over the orchestra's, over the band's ... to the crowd in the distance

Choral downtime

A few spaces on the choir back benches! Note that this choir, though generously miked, doesn't work with a handheld mic for each singer, as the Danish choirs do

Behind the choir, from another angle

Woodwind, violas and 'celli
