    Opera with a difference... ? France/Sanxay 2016

    Want to try something different, how about an opera staged in the open in rural France in an ancient Roman amphitheatre?
    Only 3 performances a year !

    In 2016, it's Rigoletto on the 8th, 10th and 12th August (9th, 11th and 13th are reserve days in case of weather problems). Have a look at http://www.operasanxay.fr/

    Quite an experience for me in 2014. A great way to merge a love of opera and a holiday ! We stayed only 10 minutes from the venue in a Château. Have a look at http://www.chateaudesforges.co.uk/ Great food, music, relaxation and some golf.

    I have a DVD of an opera is such a setting: L'Elisir d'Amore, but is staged in an amphitheatre in Macerata, Italy.
