A *real* panorama photographer would've said to hell with the rules!,
whipped out the tripod he had stuffed up his pants leg and fired off a
complete sphere before he was drug out of there kicking and screaming by
the carabiniere to some dank dark dungeon on an unknown island off of
Sicily. But no. You had to follow the rules. =8^)
Nice theatre. Are all of the walls, including the stage walls, marble?
Thanks for sharing this.
