This picture was taken by editor Alex Leith last Thursday at the Garden Opera Company’s performance of Cosi Fan Tutte at Pelham House. “I borrowed a tripod from another journalist at the performance,” he said, “and cranked the camera up to its maximum 4 megapixel setting.” You can make out most of the individuals in the audience: no doubt you’ll recognise a few of Lewes’ more prominent characters. We like the way in which the fidgety people’s heads have moved during the shutter action. We also like the amazing way the theatre lights are illuminating the audience. We’d like to congratulate reader Ness Newman (who will no doubt recognise herself) for winning two free tickets for the performance and a free meal at Circa. All proceeds went to the charity ‘Home Start’.
