view web site ›'s insider take:

It's unlikely you've ever experienced a theater quite like this one. Situated 200 feet above the sea, these 750 open-air seats were carved out of a cliff edge in the 1930s, in the style of a Greek amphitheater. May through September, performances might include anything from plays (Shakespeare's Twelfth Night) and operas (Carmen) to musicals (Man of La Mancha) and recitals. Even if you don't fancy catching a performance, you can explore the theater on nonperformance days (check the website) and check out the view (look for sharks basking in the beautiful Porthcurno Bay below).
