No shine from the diamonds

The Diamonds of the Opera show that was advertised on the Bigastro web site was scheduled for last night at 9pm. Pam and I had our evening meal early and I packed my camera gear ready to take photos.

Realising that this could be popular, we set off in the car in good time. When we got to the car park on the other side of the bypass we did wonder why there were so few cars there. As we crossed the bridge we could see that the auditorium was in darkness and as we reached the doors it was clear that nothing was taking place.

On our way back home we began to doubt our sanity, had we just imagined that poster or had we simply misread it. Maybe we had the date wrong or possibly the concert was at some other venue so we both checked it thoroughly. I’m pleased to say that our sanity is still intact, the poster did say Saturday 29th September at 9pm and the concert was to be held in the Auditorium Francisco Grau.

There was obviously some good reason why the concert was cancelled. However, what I cannot understand is how come everyone else but us knew that. I would have expected at least a handful of others to be waiting outside having read the same advert on the web site but no, there wasn’t another soul by the doors to the auditorium.

Hopefully someone will be able to shed some light on this mystery for us.
