As in the case of the ballet Isadora, during the final rehearsals of the double-billed operas Mirrors of the Truth and The Tell-Tale Heart, both taking place on the same set, Kay photographically documented his costume creations in action on stage.

Characteristic of Kay’s photographic work, these images reveal his gifted, sensuous perception in capturing distinctive facets of human countenance – something he never took for granted – as his compassion for fellow human beings and his subtle approach testify.
