The French in Gavarnie

 
Our French family have been on vacation in Gavarnie a village in the Haute Pyrenees and the Prime Meridian passes through it.  Pilgrims en route to Santago de Compostela used to stop for refreshment.
A play was being produced whilst they were there
 
The play Ulysses was excellent - over a 1000 audience - enjoyed by teenagers and grown - ups alike.
Ulysses was slightly upstaged by a glorious sunset

Hold on a second...that's where they staged a play?! For real!? That's fantastic. A unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Environmental theater is becoming more popular here in NYC but nothing will ever touch that. Thanks for the pics.

Exile: open air theatre is such a challenge to the cast -if only to capture the audience's attention away from the beauty and distractions of nature.

Naomi: there were two photos of llamas and Ivy the dog but they wouldn't post. The llmas didn't like Ivy.

What a glorious setting, but such a great challenge to do theatre here. I'd love to experience this.

I'm catching up, post by post, on your blog.
