Terfel's voice might have hardened a little over the years but he still tears up the stage & is absolutely mesmerizing #ROHFaust

Surely Yoncheva is the new Callas - a vocal and dramatic phenomenon in #ROHFaust - first time I have REALLY enjoyed this production.

Enjoyed the performance and production of #ROHFaust but I am not sure of the quality of the piece itself.

As an opera, though, #ROHfaust doesn't grab me. Tonight perhaps got me as close as I'll ever get to being excited about grand opera.
