THE MONASTERY OF THE BATTLE

Russell’s late evening one-man show at Batalha, Portugal was a great success … so much so that he appears to be planning a return trip.

The following is from Leiria TV News and the commentary is, of course, in Portuguese though Russell chats in English in a post-performance interview..
