Saw #ROHhoffmann for the first time. Some very good bits of music, but, maybe controversial, it was kind of dull. And the set was very dated

Given more up to date versions, the passing of time and competition from down the road - time for a new staging, no? #ROHhoffmann

Grigolo has got great voice & incredible stamina but his acting and expressions felt too monotonous to me. #ROHhoffmann

Lovely Giulietta from Christine Rice. Velvety & warm & not afraid of the tessitura either #ROHHoffmann
