Still surfacing after that truly wonderful #ROHTristan last night... And can't think of enough superlatives for Stemme's transcendent Isolde

Ok, it's been almost an hour since #ROHTristan finished. I can finally sort of think again. But please nobody talk to me yet.

There really are no suitable superlatives to describe Nina Stemme's Isolde in #ROHTristan tonight. Something to treasure.

A shaky start that progressively steadied to let the beauty of Wagner's music shine through. Isolde and Brangäne in top form #ROHTristan

Spoke too soon. Act III of #ROHTristan genuinely stunning. What a liebestod from Nina Stemme. Transcendent.

OH MY GOD STEMME'S LIEBESTOD #ROHTristan

With staging so bare, Kareol looks very like Cornwall. "Don't you recognise yr ancestral hall, Tristan?" No?You can't blame him. #ROHTristan

Nicest thing about tonight's #ROHTristan is that my son is with me and loving it. Thankfully, no one ever told him opera wasn't for him.

What did you think of Tristan und Isolde?
The production is a co-production with Houston Grand Opera and is given with generous philanthropic support from Peter and Fiona Espenhahn, Malcolm Herring, Bertrand and Elisabeth Meunier and Lindsay and Sarah Tomlinson.
