Summary

The photography of Angus McBean encompasses more than three decades of the history of British theatre. His work includes some of the most memorable theatre productions of the Old Vic Company and what is now the Royal Shakespeare Company; opera productions at Glyndebourne and the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden; ballet from Sadler's Wells; and West End productions of plays and musicals. He was a favourite photographer of Vivien Leigh, Laurence Olivier, and Edith Evans. He photographed countless plays starring the likes of John Gielgud, Ralph Richardson, and Alec Guinness, not to mention young stars such as Audrey Hepburn, Richard Burton, and Elizabeth Taylor.
