Last night we attended a concert in Lacoste, close to our house. Performed by an eighty-piece orchestra, it was held in a former quarry which has been transformed into an open-air theatre. We found ourselves sitting directly behind Pierre Cardin, patron and supporter of the event, seen below with a green sweater over his shoulders. The weather was unseasonably cool and a strong mistral swirled inside the quarry. Aides and musicians rushed about chasing airborne sheets of music and taping down music stands. The combination of rousing symphony and wild weather was greatly entertaining as the orchestra struggled on, hair streaming in the wind.
