#ROHfrau was absolutely incredible; one of the most overwhelmingly and unexpectedly beautiful operatic performances I've seen. Thank you!

Woken up with the glories of #ROHFrau still whizzing through my brain. Pankratova's 'Barak, ich hab' es nicht getan!' absolutely fearless.

Thought I'd never hear Frau ohne Schatten as well conducted as my first time, under Dohnányi. Not sure Bychkov wasn't better still. #ROHfrau

I didn’t understand the very very end of #ROHFrau last night AT ALL. Don’t want to say more about it than that as it’d constitute a spoiler.

How have I got to this point in my life without knowing Die Frau ohne Schatten?! Utterly glorious. Singing/playing extraordinary #ROHFrau

Strauss wins again (he always does in the end) #ROHfrau Spare, taut, loud. Vintage show? Hmmm. Voice friendly? Very. Get a ticket? YES

Flawless singing, magnificent orchestra bt stilted stage movement esp wt animal masks. As if for lack of dance talent in the haus #ROHfrau

I was blown away by #ROHFrau tonight. Fabulous orch playing & singing under maestro Bychkov's magic wand.

#ROHfrau hilariously overblown, good moments, but the staging is really below par, and doesn't begin to cover the weakness of the music.

What did you think of Die Frau ohne Schatten?
The production is staged with generous philanthropic support from Sir Simon and Lady Robertson, Hamish and Sophie Forsyth, The Friends of Covent Garden and an anonymous donor.
