Love, death, and FAB frocks! Der Wunderkaufmann too. #ROHChenier a total musicodramatico triumph.

#ROHChenier is ambitious and well rehearsed. Kaufmann delivers the vocal goods, but it's Westbroek who breathes life into this production.

Been thinking about my reservations with #ROHChenier; whilst beautiful, the direction was so traditional, I was left completely unchallenged

#ROHChenier In between the big arias it could be quite boring, but the awesome sets and costumes have made up for that.

Acts 1-3 of #ROHChenier were very good & occasionally great but Act 4 hit the heights. Odd to hear the production team cheered for a change

Great singing & music playing and beautifully crafted costumes & sets. And yet I'm not overwhelmed as much as anticipated. #ROHChenier

Marvellous #RohChenier. The last 16 minutes are to die for - gorgeous orchestra, leads and staging.
