The Minack Theatre in July

So, last month I performed for the second time at The Minack Theatre in Cornwall. The opera was The Marriage of Figaro, the company New Cornwall Opera, and I played The Count. It was rather a different experience from last time I was there, as this time we were in the middle of the heatwave that was gripping the country in a bear-hug of suncream, shades, ice cream and barbecues (or sweaty, grimy discomfort it you were unlucky enough to find yourself in London at the time).

Here are some pics that I took during the week. Hope you enjoy them.

Act 2 finale: The Count and Countess face-off in the middle of the mayhem.

After the matinee the audience thins can almost feel the heat!
