    Having seen this live on the 9th May it was amazing to see this "close up" such an amazing production and cast - I only hope it becomes available on DVD in the near future

    Really surprised by how much I enjoyed this opera. Didn't know anything at all about it before so started to watch on the basis of 'give it a go'. I was hooked in the first five minutes. Great singing as always from Mariusz Kwiecien and wonderful orchestra under Pappano. Thank you for the opportunity to be introduced to new things - wish I had booked to see it live now!

    I saw this on the openwing night at Covent Garden and was blown away. It was great to see it again at home. Totally impressed.

    I appreciated very much the initiative of the Royal Opera to transmit live the performance of King Roger. Antonio Pappano's conduction was fantastic as well as Kasper Holten's direction. The whole vocal cast has been on top of this great work, but Saimir Pirgu' Shepherd has been notable, singing this very difficult role competently, with sublime musicality and a voice of rare beauty that has completely captivated me from his first notes. His Shepherd has really dazzled this dark production. A special mention to the oustanding Royal Opera' chorus directed by Renato Balsadonna. After I enjoyed this wonderful show from home, I decided that I can't miss the performance of 19 May.

    This opera is getting its real importance in last times. In my country, Spain, it has been performed in three Opera houses (Barcelona, Madrid and Bilbao), in three different productions, in last years. Szymanowski is one of the great XX Century genious, born in the 80s in XIX Century. A very good production, cast and conductor.
