The sound of silence, so to speak. This is what an opera house devoid of personnel, devoid of singers, orchestra musicians and an attending audience, "sounds" and looks like during these Covid-19 days. I had the chance to take pictures in the Wuppertal Opera, home for instance to the famous Pina Bausch Dance Company. I feel that these pictures stand "pars pro toto" for all the theaters and opera houses around the world that had to at least temporarily shut down because of the Covid-19 pandemic. I am a professional musician myself, so this series is really close to my heart.
