Mozart at Castelnau Bretenoux

Saw Mozart's Don Juan (Don Giovanni) in the courtyard of Castelnau-Bretenoux last night, part of the Saint-Céré Festival. We had a picnic on the ramparts of the castle before the opera and the weather was perfect. All the previous performances had been cancelled due to bad weather, so we were very lucky.

The performance was so-so ( Don Juan was terribly young for a roué- see above- and what can you expect for 25 euros?) but it was a superb evening. And thanks to YouTube, I have found magnificent productions that I have been playing all morning.
