I had a bit of busman's holiday this evening.

 

I went to see Glyndebourne's production of Don Pasquale.

I've worked on the show a couple of times before, but have never seen it from the front.

So it was lovely to see how the backstage hustle and bustle creates the perfect, magical illusion on stage of elegance, poise and charm.

The show was a delight – to me, a bit like a theatrical interpretation of the experience of eating a macaron.

Here are some sketches I made while working on the show in previous years.
