Went to cinema to see live feed of #ROHEugeneOnegin and was absolutely bowled over. Intensely moving - using young doubles made it more so.Chris Brazier
@RoyalOperaHouse it was my 1st opera experience, it was amazing, I loved it! #ROHEugeneOnegin still on a high this morning.Monique P
Struggled to empathise w/ characters in #roheugeneonegin tonight. Great performance but sets/ acting too stark, too inner focused for me.Rahul Pinto Kamath
Loved the performances and the brilliant meaningful staging decisions, like Tatyana retreating inside the bookcase #roheugeneoneginMagpie_Elle

#roheugeneonegin Loved in cinema - music, singing & acting, not sure about direction. Gremin on in last scene weakens Tatyana's resolve.Gil Skidmore
#ROHEugeneOnegin absorbing production tho wrong wrong wrong bring Gremin on in last scene!!! Bravo Tatyana & LenskyJules Cassidy
Well I didn't expect to be so impressed by #ROHEugeneOnegin live relay. Powerful performances which came over well on the big screen.Mary Anne Poxton
Young Tatyana writhing in orgasmic ecstacy was a little unnecessary too. Didn't enjoy the production. Left at the interval #rohEugeneOneginDolphin Diver

Also loved how memories were invoked by more & more objects on the stage at #roheugeneonegin Very #emthings!Katy Barrett
Could do with more wide shots though. Closeups tend to spoil the illusion, particularly with young Tatyana. #ROHEugeneOneginMoray Macdonald
#ROHEugeneOnegin The big screen adds extraordinary extra dimension with the close ups. Pictures/Sound outstanding.Paddy Briggs
As a ridiculously bookish person, I found the scene where the young Tatyana tore a book to pieces rather tragic and brutal #ROHeugeneoneginIl Dolce Suono
#ROHEugeneOnegin was magnificently sung and played and the production really worked for me. Aching with lost opportunity. Very movingMichael Llewellyn

Going to bed now - may dream of Simon Keenlyside, this is the best performance of his I've seen! #ROHeugeneoneginJane Ennis
Fab 2nd viewing of HD #ROHEugeneOnegin Krassimira Stoyanova took my breath away.What a voice! Love Pavol too!! Amazing cast & production Annette
The ballet dancers/younger versions of Eugene and Tatyana were good once I had worked out exactly what they represented #ROHeugeneoneginIl Dolce Suono
#ROHeugeneonegin #PavolBreslik was a wonderful Lensky - extra points for lying completely still and resisting sleep during Part II!Kate Oakley
