Lovely cast for #ROHCosi and some special singing. But the production's busier and less focussed than I remembered. Montanari turns the continuo into a concerto. Felt self-indulgent

This was one of those Così rectifying the internalised misogyny of the play.

Some impressive singing from the cast tonight #ROHcosi still don't like this production much. Tries to be a bit to clever.

Soloists excellent in #ROHcosi but was plenty to clear up in the revival and the production essentially just doesn't really work I don't think
