a midsummer night's theatre outing...

Many of my last few days in Barcelona this summer were hot, sweaty and hectic... but the evenings were still wonderful. On this particular night I threw on one of my favourite simple summer dresses and headed to the Grec theatre festival. The Grec takes place in a number of venues around Barcelona, but perhaps the most magical on summer nights is the open-air amphitheatre-style space on Montjuic. We saw Puz/zle, a modern dance piece that was creative and stimulating, if about 1/2 an hour too long and a bit spiritual for my taste. Still, another experience checked off my ever-expanding list!

P.S. My new favourite shoes are from a wonderful Spanish brand Naguisa, the necklace is from Red Brick, and the dress is a really cheap one from the Asos sale last year (cheap dresses are the best for not worrying about sweating all over them).

Wow, great venue. Is that a Roman theatre?

@Gordianus: Apparently not. It was built at the turn of the last century, at the same time as the Palace (MNAC art gallery). It's just supposed to look Roman. It's a nice setting for a play anyway!

Great dress and I'm quite jealous of your growing experience list. Never enough travel and long evenings out really.
PS on the Chicwish dress, arrives wrinkled. I don't think it runs small--I'm wearing the small and I usually wear an xs and it fits how I expect a small to fit, still a little large. It's got a nice bit of lining to it, so other than the sleeves it's not sheer nor do I feel a need to wear a slip with it. The fabric is an interesting feel, not sure how to describe it but not really soft/awesome feeling. Hope that helps.
