Good start to 2015/16 opera season with delightful #ROHorphee, fine performance from Florez & nice balance of opera/dance in the production.

Preferred 1st half production but 2nd half musically. Dancing grew a bit tired (at least, I grew tired of it) but those duets....#ROHOrphee

Excellent #ROHorphee. It takes a lot to overshadow JDF. The dancing, central orchestra and choir were the true stars of the production.

Whilst elements of the design and lighting were spectacular, the placing of the orchestra was problematic for me... #ROHOrphee

What did you think of Orphée et Eurydice?
Orphée et Eurydice until 3 October 2015. Tickets are still available.
The production is staged with generous philanthropic support from Mrs Aline Foriel-Destezet, and is part of #Hofest.
