Well that serves me write for commenting on the weather at outdoor opera. Last night at Opera Holland Park the weather did its best to sympathise with the drama on-stage. No rain, but plenty of wind with lots of groaning in the rafters from the canopy. Also, by the opening of act 3 the cold meant that most of the opera goers were wrapped up, blankets in abundance, looking for all the world like refugees rather than a first-night opera audience. Still, it didn't seem to phase the singers and players, which was amazing.
