  1. I thoroughly enjoyed it. A great way to see opera, and to make it more accessible. The introductory films were very informative also. I would definitely go again. However from a technical point of view. In the cinema I was in the audio was out of sync by a couple of frames. And from an aesthetic point of view there were too many close ups. It was shot like a TV production, when in fact it should be more filmic, let the amazing set do its job. Thank you.

    Linedestrom was fabulous. Great venerable production. Good choice to open cinema season. But in cinema broadcast too many distracting close-ups and switching of camera angles too frequent. A greater amount of time should have been full stage shots to appreciate design and movement direction and give better feel for actually being in the House.

    Too many close ups. Very poor acting from the tenor who sang well, so wooden.An attempt should have been made to make the Princess more attractive.

    Desde la ciudad de Buenos Aires, agradezco profundamente por la calidad y belleza de la regie de Turandot... y por las otras obras, por ejemplo 'la hija del regimiento' de Donizetti, desde el Coven Garden con Natalie Dessay y Juan Diego Flores... Esto fue hace un tiempo... Gracias ... muchas gracias por darnos la posibilidad de conocer tantas bellezas !!!!

    It was presented only today, Dec 8, in Brasilia. Did enjoy it. Beautiful production, singing OK, better voice was Timur's. Ping, Pong and Pang excellent. Thanks to ROH and congratulations!
