Kristina and Andrea:
"It's such a dramatic and sensual opera and we really loved the doubles concept. It's not an opera we'd seen before but enjoyed it a lot. Elena Maximova as Olga was a particular highlight."
Mike and David:
"Simon Keenlyside as Onegin was a highlight but we also enjoyed the performances of Pavol Breslik as Lensky and Elena Maximova as Olga . We saw the previous production of the opera at Covent Garden and this gives something different though we're not convinced about the austerity staging"
Claire and Susannah:
"The production is fabulous. We particularly love the design and the projected backdrops are great. It's the first time that we've seen the opera we can see why it's a classic - a very attractive new production!"
David and Gareth:
"The production is beautifully performed but we're not sure about the doubles concept. Simon Keenlyside really gives a new take on the character of Onegin and his was a real in your face performance. He really throws himself into his part, as does Robin Ticciati whose conducting is a little on the loud side - we could hear him from our seat!"

Looks like reaction to #ROHEugeneOnegin is nice & mixed. I love the fact that a show can produce so many opinions.Operatraveller
Thoroughly enjoyed #ROHEugeneOnegin. Production took getting used to but generally effective. Great cast and orchestra!Charlotte Yuen
#ROHEugeneOnegin appealed to me more on a cerebral level than an emotional one.Think I’ll get more from it when I see it “up close” on 20th.Ruth Elleson
