Incredible first night of #ROHtraviata! Still hear Diana's and Demuro's voices in my head. And Dmitri Hvorostovsky! You were amazing!

Grand cast at #ROHtraviata last night! Great musical direction too but orchestra too loud at times (barely heard Violetta in act 2's climax)

This was my third Traviata and the first time I really listened to Act 2. Psychologically intense drama #ROHtraviata

A disappointing evening for me at #ROHtraviata. Despite some good singing, I got no sense of dramatic architecture/momentum. Left me cold :(

Great performance by #ROHtraviata. Shame half the audience had consumption as well!

Admiring , not loving Damrau;moments of great power but too considered #ROHTraviata.Is she 1st Germanic Violetta here since Betty Blackhead?

I reckon Damrau, Demuro, Hvorostovsky had a bet going as to who could sing the most bars of something in one breath ;)… #ROHTraviata

It’s fascinating to see the opinions of tonight’s #ROHTraviata , from full agreements to polar opposites. I love that about theatre :)
