First things first. Act 5 of Don Carlos among the best operatic music ever written #rohdoncarlo

EKATERINA SEMEMCHUK'S CHEST VOICE #ROHDonCarlo

On reflection #ROHDonCarlo was quite underwhelming. I much prefer Hytner as an opera director but the nuances of the score didn't appear.

Schiller's source material was never closer to the surface than in this stunning revival of #rohdoncarlo. Thrilling ensembles and duets.

Under-cast. Under-conducted. Under-sung. Unintelligent production. Too often under-pitch.

Great performances at #ROHDonCarlo tonight and stunning production.

Enjoyable, sometimes moving #rohdoncarlo tonight but which was somehow less than the sum of its many fine parts.

#ROHDoncarlo Changes: the red "Lego" bricks now black, Christ has had a radical makeover & the offending extra noises in auto-da-fe reduced
