A WONDERFUL evening of opera was held at the Gardens of Easton Lodge, Little Easton, on Saturday.

Given the unpredictable British climate, an open-air performance can be a risky business, but the rain held off and the crowd were treated to an enchanting evening.

The warm weather and the beauty of the surroundings provided the perfect setting for a performance of La Boheme, by The Garden Opera Company.

Sung in English, Puccini's much-loved opera of romantic bohemian Paris life was adapted brilliantly for the open-air stage.

Many of the people who turned up to watch the show brought food and drink, which really added to the atmosphere of the occasion.

The small band of actors gave a sparkling performance in imaginative costumes.
