#ROHladymacbeth Another night, another opera. Stunning performances all round. Production was part slapstick, part utter menace and despair. A worthy 20th C addition to the reportoire

@RoyalOperaHouse #ROHladymacbeth #Shostakovich meets #RichardJones in a spark of genius. Westbroek excelled as Katerina. Pappano, orchestra and @ROHchorus superb as every time this season. Dark, funny, tragic, satire, if Stalin walked out of it, I wouldn't miss it... 5*

Great #ROHladymacbeth by turns humorous, sarcastic & dark. Best thing I’ve see Eva Maria Westbroek do. Pappano, orchestra and chorus outstanding as ever.

At tonight's curtain call there was a long and loud applause for Mr. John Tomlinson. 40 years of performing at the @RoyalOperaHouse... like WOW! His convincing and hilarious performance of Boris was exceptional.#ROHladymacbeth pic.twitter.com/aRvqL9AvDX

The darkest of humour, the loudest of brasses and a spectacular performance from cast, chorus and orchestra. Very glad I convinced myself to make the trek from Edinburgh for #ROHLadyMacbeth #Shostakovich
