I was at Garsington's gorgeous theatre at Wormsley yesterday for a pre-dress rehearsal. This beautiful place is ready for the annual summer invasion of discerning opera goers, but yesterday it was pretty well deserted apart from all the artists and staff getting the acts together! This evening will be another matter as invited friends and family will fill the house for the first of the dress rehearsals with an audience, a friendly and particularly enthusiastic one of course......meanwhile yesterday we enjoyed the natural beauties of this special place without much human intervention!
This evening it is Die Zauberflöte and tomorrow Capriccio. I will be there!
