Sara's Blog August 2016
Agosto â€“ the finest month of the year on the sunny shores of the Costa del Sol. The height of the glorious summer weather and the pinnacle of Sotograndeâ€™s social calendar. Itâ€™s the month that both visitors and residents cannot wait for and this August has been the most fabulous I have ever witnessed.
It really is hard to know where to begin.
Last Saturday we experienced a truly "Magical Night of Opera" in Sotogrande. Patricia Darch and her team organised this Charity Event to raise funds for children with cancer, especially for leukaemia research. The money raised throughout the event went to the Josep Carrera Foundation. The Opera Stars: Stefanie Kemball-Read, Aurore Lacabe, Nick Ransley andÂ James ClevertonÂ performed aria pieces of Rigoletto, Die ZauberflĂ¶te, Don Govanni, La Traviata, Carmen... to name a few.Â The evening was a first class event from start to finish.Â The performance of theÂ arias inspired me to visit the Madrid or Seville Operas.Â Looking forward to many more events in Sotogrande!Â
