Opéra de Baugé

The website for the Opéra de Baugé tells you more about the organisation than I can in this blog. We went there recently with some friends to see Beethoven's Fidelio. And A fine experience it was too: The opera itself was excellent, it was good to see friends from England again and the pic-nic on the lawn during the interval was fun. To add a special interest, the daughter of one of the friends was playing flute in the orchestra. I remember her when she was learning.

We made a day of it, visiting the castle in the town of Baugé itself, before wandering off to the opera that was in the grounds of a manor house just on the edge of the town. Here's some pictures: the castle, the pic-nic lawn, and a couple of photos I took in an abandoned greenhouse and shed: a vaulted brick roof, and a stack of flower pots.

I passed Bauge chateau so many times...and it was never at opening time!
I do like the brick roof and the pots...beautiful colours.

I do wish there were places like this in Britain. We have either National Trust or well.... Loved the lower pots.
