Operetta and its ilk needs the lightest of directorial touches and the most gorgeous of singing. Sadly #ROHetoile fell short on both for me

Whilst it was an amiable piece, with much charm, delightful melody and piquant orchestration #ROHetoile felt a little flat and small-scale

Good singing from Héléne Guilmette & Julie Bouilianne.Samuel Sakker's voice immediately caught my attention in the opening scene #ROHetoile

Felt the character of Smith was superfluous & held up the already creaking narrative. Though the audience seemed to love it #ROHÉtoile

English slapstick favoured over French farce... All a bit "Carry on up the Champs-Élysées". #ROHetoile

#ROHetoile Some of the jokes somewhat laboured, but overall enjoyable fun (don't often get to say that in opera :/) Kate Lindsey fabulous

#ROHetoile a delightful piece of froth, very imaginatively produced and excellence in the pit from Sir Mark Elder.
