Guillaume Who? #RohCavPag is the new kid on the block and Michieletto made good. Loved the play crossing into a surreal psychodrama

Pappano & his orchestra & chorus doing what he does best- no holds barred full throated Italian verismo #ROHcavpag

In one 10-minute sequence of theatrical genius Damiano Michieletto atoned for the entire misbegotten adventure of Guillaume Tell. #ROHcavpag

Hadn't seen Cav for years and had forgotten what a fundamentally trivial piece it is. Lots of lovely tunes and cod drama. Yawn #ROHcavpag

Damiano Michieletto's turning Pag inside out richly resonates with dramatic meaning and partly detracts from some poor singing in #ROHCavPag

In the category of "operas/productions suitable for a first-time audience", #ROHCavPag must be high on the list.
