Teddy and I went to Stockholm to study Swedish court theatres and royal follies from the time of Gustav III. In particular Teddy wanted to check out the theatre at Drottningholm Palace. We had a thorough look and even went back stage and pulled the ropes of the thunder machine. Later we admired the Chinese Pavilion and the Dragoon Guards’ tent. We went to Haga Park to see the Sultan’s copper tents, to Ulriksdal Palace and to Gripsholm Castle also housing beautiful theatres. At Gripsholm we had a chance to go below stage to study the wooden mechanisms for changing the set pieces.
