#ROHReview2017 my favourite moment was Atalla Ayan singing the role of Nemorino from the side of the stage during 2nd act of the performance of L'Elisir d'Amore back in June when Roberto Alagna's voice gave out,but he gamely went on acting!

#ROHreview2017 - favourite ROH moment this year: the pain & power of last 10 mins of Cavelleria. I stopped breathing - mesmerising.
