My 1st opera viewing (Even though it's in a cinema). I never knew a opera could be this fascinating and breathtaking! #ROHturandot

#ROHTurandot cinema broadcast had too many close-ups. Don't need to see every detail of singer's make-up nor to look down singer's throats.

I am proud that I am Japanese because of Eri Nakamura. Amazing experience in Finland, thank you! #ROHturandot

So many things totally wrong with opera, made worse by cinema close ups & subtitles but fabulous music and still loved it! #ROHturandot

#ROHturandot Terrible production. Songs are depressing enough without the overbearing, claustrophobic sets. Badly miscast, too.
