Copyright of Theatrical Production Design Photography

Hello All!

Thanks for any and all clarity on this subject. I am just trying to get myself on the correct side of things.

I understand that the copyright of photographs I have been comissioned to take of a dress rehearsal of a theatrical production belong to me. The copyright of the design elements within the production, however, I assume belong to those different artists (set designer, costume designer, lighting designer etc etc). My question is:

Since I was comissioned to photograph the dress rehearsal can I sell the images for my own profit to the general public?

Does it depend on the written/verbal contract in terms of rights usage between myself and the producer?

I am not saying I am going to do this I am just curious.

Thanks for your insights in advance! What a great website and forum!!
