    Watched 'la boheme' on the big screen at Belfast City Hall. The image and sound quality were both excellent, and made for a very enjoyable night of opera.
    The introduction and interval items were greatly appreciated and brought the whole thing together. Kirsty Wark and Angela Gheorghiu on the one evening-more than a romantic heart can stand!!!
    The principals were excellent, as was the whole company, but it was particularily true of Vittorio Grigolo who has matured into a true lead tenor. His passionate 'che gelida manina' culminating in the powerful and passionate 'la speranza' did not disappoint, but brought a deserved ovation.
    Looking forward to Rigoletto already, althought the weather might not be just as good as last night.
    Thank-you ROH and BP

    Fantastic evening. The weather, the atmosphere and the performance. Set in the grounds of Nottingham Trent Bridge cricket club, with a picturesque sunset, the comical yet emotionally romantic script was sung with great passion that took me on a journey of non-stop entertainment (apart from the intervals).
    Many thanks for the subtitles!!!
