The Royal Swedish Opera and Ballet asked photographer and film maker Morgan Norman to make an artistic and cinematic trailer for Don Quijote.
“I had more ore less free hands so it was really fun to direct this video. My plan was to work with three different worlds, or settings, to tell a story about the dancers. I see it like a journey. The Backstage is symbolizing the beginning and preparation, The Golden Room is for the focus and the voyage, and finally The Stage is symbolising the lovers, all parts of Don Quijote.” www.morgannorman.com
