Emotional night at ROH (well, it was #ROHcarmen, so what do you expect?). Excellent cast, first a time Micaela moves me.

#ROHCarmen music swayed between lullaby slow and positively marchy but lacking in arabesque. .

Still on an opera high after #ROHCarmen last night – such an epic opera. Thought act 4 was best by far, completely visceral and thrilling.

Georgian mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili is giving this performance seven bells. Must be one of the most demanding in the canon #Carmen

Just seen Carmen at the royal opera house. Was amazing.
