Cotwsold farmer converts barn into opera house

Cotswold farmer Martin Graham has converted his barn into a 290-seat opera
house. The hens and calves have been ejected to satisfy his passion for the
likes of Carmen and Don Giovanni.

Graham, whose farm is on the outskirts of Longborough, overlooking the
Evenlode valley, will launch the Longborough Festival at his farm this week.
The seats will be removed in winter to allow the hens back in.
