The nuns are very popular with our audience. Well done, ‘ladies’!
It’s the third performance of The Adventures of Count Ory tonight, with a chance that we get a real thunderstorm, and a certainty that those nun’s habits will be unbearably hot!
Apparently I’m a very convincing nun (that’s me far left) and a number of people have said they are reminded of their school days… hmm. Just because I can get a wimple on straight. I have a queue of tenors and basses asking me to put theirs right in the interval!
Some pretty silly alternative titles for the show have been flying about my favourite so far is the Baritones of Wimple Street. (If you don’t get it, you aren’t old enough.)
Joyce di Donato sent us a good luck message, and we tweeted her back a picture of the nuns, much to her amusement. We are even more funny in motion and song – come and find out!
