Life is Short, Opera is Long

A video I produced to go with Daniel Bergner's story about the National Council Auditions at the Metropolitan Opera, a career-launching contest held every year. One of the highlights for me, aside from spending time at the Met with highly talented singers, was meeting Lee Friedlander, who shot the still images for the magazine. Even if you don't know his influential street photography you've probably seen his early commercial work shooting album covers for Columbia Jazz records like the cover of "In a Silent Way" by Miles Davis. But enough about jazz, let's listen to some opera!
