Your reaction: Elektra
A selection of audience tweets about Charles Edwards's production of Richard Strauss's opera.
The roar for Goerke tonight was, I think, the biggest I’ve ever heard in Covent Garden. What a performance! #ROHElektra

Definitely going to have to go to #ROHElektra again. Hopefully I'll have a free night on one of the other shows. *crosses everything*

Rather floored by #ROHElektra; phenomenal cast, orchestra spot on; a consummate evening of theatre. Also, everyone loves a happy ending.

Still sitting on the floor unable to undress or move. Tweeting is a task too far. Literally FLOORED. HUMBLED. #ROHElektra

#ROHelektra: the keywords are blood, madness, plotting, incest, murder, revenge. A must-see for anyone who thinks opera is for softies.

I don’t think anyone conducts Strauss as well as Nelsons. The orchestra was a real sound world in #ROHElektra – adding meaning to the words.

Absolutely exhilarated after #ROHElektra

1st night of #rohelektra a total knockout. Goerke sensational, Nelsons created a fantastic performance. Lots of superlatives & all justified
