Backstage at the Village Opera

I took these photos during a typical traditional Vietnamese opera performance last month at the whale temple in Phan Thiet. The performers graciously let me walk around 'backstage' and get a lot of great candid shots.

About to enter the stage

Just finished make-up

An audience fixated

Lights! Drums! Microphones! Action!
