As the curtain comes down on an eventful year, we're taking a look back at your highlights from a year of performances on the Royal Opera House stage.
Perhaps you were tickled by Shostakovich's wonderfully wacky opera, The Nose, on stage in the autumn? Maybe you were bowled over by the much-discussed production of Lucia di Lammermoor back in April/May, or did you fall in love with Puccini's operatic tryptich, Il trittico? Did you discover a new composer, or an opera you'd never seen before?
Whether you were wowed by Werther or bowled over by Boris Godunov, we'd love to hear your favourite moments of 2016. Anyone who comments on this blog or shares their thoughts via Twitter using the hashtag #ROHreview2016 will be entered into a prize draw to win two tickets to George Benjamin's highly acclaimed opera Written on Skin.
Here are some of your favourites via Twitter:
#ROHreview2016 The Nose did it for me. One ticked off the bucket list. Great fun.
