Awkward. They're holding musical instruments, but the tone is more like the viewer has stumbled across the hideout of somewhat drugged-up hippies who've grabbed the nearest thing to hand and are considering whether to try attacking you.
I am now working on a discography of the works of Vagn Holmboe. Please visit and also contribute!

Photographer: "Smile!"
Artists: "Don't fucking tell me what to do!"

Fresh skin for the new drum head, fresh bone for the new recorder.

Hehe.

They look more like an indie pop duo who have just discovered "world music".

They might want to call themselves The Miserableists. Or maybe The Downers.

Nominated for the thread because the photographer presents us with a one legged man (center) and a man with two left feet, each with a different sort of footwear (extreme right).
(The photograph despite these eccentricities is relevant to the opera's storyline.)

This is pretty decent looking!



Too bad the blue Pacific shown in the photo is in Greece.

Found another picture of that vista.
Shipwreck Bay
Zakynthos.
Romantic sounding name, until you learn...

It seems the ship whose shipwreck gave its name to the bay was smuggling cigarettes and came to grief in the 1980s.
