Open air opera at Oxford Castle

Yesterday evening I passed by Oxford Castle during a performance by the Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Company. Until Sunday they are playing "the Yeomen of the Guard". Unfortunately I didn't have my camera with me yesterday evening so I wasn't able to take a picture by night but I took one this afternoon. With Oxford Castle as dramatic background for this Savoy opera they made a good choice, I think. It looked amazing last night with all the lights on and it sounded great. They have an alternative venue in case of inclement weather (it's an open air production) but let's hope they won't need it. So far, the weather forecast looks good, hopefully it will stay that way....
