Cour du Lycée Saint-Joseph
Tuesday July 11, 10pm
Outdoors performances can be highly poetic, emotional events, especially in Provence, where the balmy breeze and the starry skies often grace us with guest-star appearances. Thunder and lightning however, while adding to the drama of some shows, are rather unwelcome. Indeed, as we were watching the first scenes of Edward Bond's NAITRE (in French), a highly controversial production here in Avignon, the pouring rain somewhat kept me from focusing on what was going on onstage.
The performance was canceled after only a couple of scenes.
