RO successfully confused me again. . 1st by body double and this time who's who guessing game. #ROHnabuccoYosh M
Still, #ROHchorus singing 'Va, pensiero' was worth the ticket price alone #ROHNabucco #youdknowitifyouhearditLisa Katsiaris
Puzzling production, much fine singing, chorus star of show. #ROHnabuccoPaul Lay

Stonehenge in a sandpit. There, that's the set done with. Now for the rest of my review. #ROHNabuccoMark Pullinger
production a bore and i didn't like inhaling that dust-could from sandpit, bet even worse for the singers #rohnabuccoHariclea Darclee
is impressed at how the singing carried on despite having sand in one's shoes. #ROHNabuccoAndrea Liu
Slightly mystified by need for a 2- or 3-minute scene change mid Act 3. From "bare stage with wire sculptures" to "bare stage" #ROHNabuccoRuth Elleson
Your comments on the cast...
#ROHnabucco is a feast for the ears while the eyes are bored. Charmless staging but with singing like this I don't care. Monastyrska rocks!Fedja Hadrovich

#ROHnabucco Is it humanly possible to have a voice as huge as Abigaille's?Andrea Liu
#ROHnabucco The singing more than redeemed an ugly and pointless production. Best Abigaile ever? I say YES!!!!!Thierry Bregliano

@RoyalOperaHouse amazing #nabucco and wonderful to see the great Leo NucciZafferano
Nicola Luisotti's conducting was spot-on & elicited some incredibly idiomatic from a rejuvenated orchestra. #ROHNabuccoOperatraveller
