Weather report

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.
