    Thank you for the great set of insights. No matter how many times I have seen the production at ROH there is always much more to learn.
    Look forward even more to coming to Saturday evening performance.

    Thank you, really interesting, especially the breakdown of the music at the piano, sorry I didn't catch his name. I came to you by hearing Gerald Finley on Radio 3 yesterday, I'm in love with his voice and was moved by what he said. I wish I could come and see it live on Saturday but it's sold out! Please let me know if there are ways to get returns.

    Thank you for posting these insights of the operas and ballets. My daughters Andrew I have been watching them all and are loving the live events at out cinemas. We are so grateful to be able to access all this wonderful material and experience theses amazing events. New to opera and the ballet we have been fortunate to visit the ROH for a behind the scenes tour and watched The Nutcracker. This initiative has opened new doors to us and we are having a ball learning about and watching fanitastic productions. Thank you so much.
