    Saw the rehearsal... And have seen this super production before. Loved it absolutely. Figaro fitted Erwin Scrott like a glove , totally believable ! Great cast. Quite a contrast with The stupendous Orphee the night before, but adored them both.

    If you assemble the best singers and musicians, glorious opera house, W A Mozart and practice for a couple of hundred years-the result should be perfection -it is-easy really.

    Last night's Figaro, coming 24 hours after our visit to the Gluck, was sheer joy. With this superb production, a longish opera sparkles throughout. Musically excellent, too, and a great and appreciative audience. This is one production I will always book for! Congratulations to Dame Ann Murray, it was good to be there on her special night.

    Great production and superb cast. But I'm annoyed that Anita Hartig withdrew from the live version of Figaro transmitted to cinemas. Sophie Bevan was a great substitute, but this is the third Hartig withdrawal I've suffered (two at the Opera House) - so I've never seen her live yet. Why invite such unreliable singers?

      Dear John

      Sorry about the disappointment. Unfortunately, singers do fall ill, but it sounds like you have been particularly unlucky.

      Best wishes

    Sexiest Cherubino ever! Kate Lindsey is the best.

    The costumes looked a little confusing. Like a mix between Traviata and Figaro, maybe. Are you sure you got the period right?

    We saw the live relay at The Odeon in Brighton. Sadly no subtitles at all, blamed on the streaming and in the 4th act their projector failed so went home early.
    However, voices, acting, set, production etc all quite splendid,Schrott, Lindsey,Dehn & Bevan magnificent,quite one of the very best productions we have seen,such a shame about the technology.

      Dear John,

      I'm very sorry that this happened during the relay. We were broadcasting subtitles last night, as we do for all our live screenings, and I shall check in with Odeon as to why they weren't appearing. I'm also going to query what happened with the projector in the hope that the problem can be rectified by the cinema before our next screening.

      Kind regards,

    First time at ROH and seeing a full cast with chorus and actors. Very special. It was beautiful, funny and sets were great. Kate Lyndsey esp great. Was fascinated by the BSL interpretation. A performance in its own right.
