Yesterday, Judith and I were in different shows. Margarite and Armand saved the night while Monotones is just monotonous.Ballet Enthusiast

Really enjoyed #ROHAshton tonight - Sergei's lines & Tamara's expressions were both incredible, but didn't love M&A as a piece (vs. Onegin).Tom Oxenham
#rohashton NO WORDS BUT ALL THE CAPSLOCK. Or: oh my holy Leanne Benjamin. Meditation from Thais = exquisite. (I cried)Nellie
I just can say "Tamara and Sergei were stunning!" But all dancers did absolutely well in #ROHashton ;) love the programmes.Nanami Ui

#rohashton Voices of Spring a charming and delightful vehicle for Yuhui Choe and Alexander Campbell with smiles that could power the cityNellie
Felt like a lot of dancing was on the R side tonight @RoyalOperaHouse. Not so good for those of us with slightly restricted seats #ROHAshtonVicky P
Whatever Sergei's cloak-swishing tendencies, you cannot deny he throws a good strop on stage #ROHAshtonVampire Soup

Gorgeous mixed bill @RoyalOperaHouse. Highlight was the joyful Voices of Spring pd2. Choe/Camphell were a breath of fresh air.Leena Hassan
Oh how the @RoyalOperaHouse stage had missed Tamara and Sergei! Already looking forward to seeing them again on the 21st! #ROHashtonFryni Panayidou

    Seen this programme twice and back again on the 21st.Highlight for me is seeing Tamara Rojo back dancing Marguerite but everything on the bill is hugely enjoyable.10 out of 10.
