You are a photographer man ... just go there and shoot shoot .... to play safe you can also seek their permission first ... maybe they even granted you permission to the backstage where they do their makeup.

I did that before and they may ask you for some photos ... :D just send them a few will do ... :bsmilie:

LET me give some insight into that

I was official photographer for one such event and was FIRMLY told
all neg MUST be returned and no copies made......hmmmm.......
which puzzled me since their tone was dead serious.

It turns out there are some competition amongst various troope
and they did not want others to copy their costumes ( which werent much to start with , heheheee )

HOWEVER when pointed out that various members of the audience were poping away, they did not mind ( presume them to be fans, hence ok )

GO FIGURE,,,,, guess if you are in chinese opera, you couldnt be too bright :)
