Drabness is a state of mind

Well Myfanwy, our visits to Glyndebourne are over for another year. In the next few days, I'll perhaps write about some of the productions in more detail, giving some links. For the moment, I'll just give you a few thoughts and impressions:
Apparently, Anish Kapoor (designer for Idomeneo) didn't realise that his set resembled a giant fanny. Was it Freudian unconsciousness that led to that design or was it all in the mind of the reviewer who first pointed it out?We picnicked this year. Dinners rushed during the eighty-five-minute intervals are a bit too conducive to indigestion, not to mention nodding off at crucial points...
Was it my imagination or were there more purveyors of the pink pound there this year? And did the audiences, especially that for Die Fledermaus, look older? Or am I, at 173, getting younger myself? Still, I suppose it's only the crumblies who think they can afford to go to Glyndebourne. They need things to tell their great-great-grandchildren.
