I've never seen an actor who can play a 'dying man with anguish' so well. Beautifully performed. Absolutely fantastic. #ROHfoscari

Anybody who's booed a Royal Opera production over the last couple of years will love #ROHFoscari - it's ultra traditional, bland, idea-free.

Maria Agresta & Francesco Meli a powerful combination, both sung superb in tough roles. Domingo gave a masterclass performance #ROHfoscari

It fell firmly into the category of "glorified concert performance with attractive costumes". #ROHFoscari

Francesco Meli sounded quite wonderful - the real Italian tenorial deal, and a Verdi stylist #ROHFoscari

Apart from a dip at beginning of Act 3, Verdi's music for I Due Foscari was always interesting, sometimes inspired. #ROHFoscari

So, #ROHFoscari. Singing good, music meh, production inoffensive but incredibly static, boring story, zero tension or drama. Just, meh.

It's definitely worth it for Domingo, but overall #ROHFoscari seems like a long story that could be told in a haiku
