Have I mentioned enough positive adjectives already regarding this theatre? I don't think so, for this place truly deserves all the wonderful words you can throw at it.
We have visited several times before and the excitement of seeing this place again never diminishes. Whether our visit may be on a sunny and warm day, or a cool and damp one the beauty of this place, just like my personal sense of excitement doesn't diminish either. A truly special, world famous place and so I'll let the photos do most of the talking!
The opera that was on that night, Cavalleria Rusticana sounded really appealing so we decided to buy tickets. The planting in front of the ticket office was fantastic and is just a preview of even better things to come as you towards the theatre itself.
|Even the views at the car park are stunning!|
|Walking towards the main theatre, you can see beautiful things ahead...|

The theatre was planned, built, and created by Rowena Cade. An inspirational woman who was determined to realise her vision of a wonderful theatre, even if she had to do most of the hard work herself

As you enter the theatre, and from the top part you are greeted by the sheer majesty of the place...
And the planting within the theatre itself is wonderful, especially if you are into succulents, with plenty of Agaves, Aloes, and Aeoniums thriving in the sunny, mild, and (very) well drained planting beds.
And a charming little plant sales area (or cupboard more like it!)...
And if you're not into plants, you can't help but admire the stunning views from the theatre...
In the afternoon there were rehearsals going on for the show later in the evening...
|With such stunning backdrop, you don't need an elaborate stage set...|
We were there all afternoon and well into the evening until the end of the performance. A truly magical place that we would never tire of visiting over and over again. And if you are ever down in Cornwall and have never been, then I'd say it's a must to visit this place!
|Great views, great garden, great theatre!|
