A stellar cast tugs at your heart strings and tickles your funny bone in equal measure, superb #ROHariadne

I maybe in a minority, but Zerbinetta just didn't bowl me over in #ROHAriadne - the role should be electrifying.

Oh my Karita! If only we had her every season... Might have to see it again! #RohAriadne

#ROHAriadne Karita was mesmerising. She owned the stage. Other than a little strain at the top, she sung gloriously and became Ariadne.

Mattila is the greatest Crysothemis, Salome & (more controversially) Arabella I've ever heard. Now she's the greatest Ariadne. #ROHAriadne

#ROHAriadne prologue: interesting staging making use of all the available space, clever and pleasing.
