Tonight's #ROHBoheme was very warmly received by the public. There are several intriguing ideas there that feel, perhaps, not quite settled

Well, I very much liked #ROHBoheme. Plenty of snow, plenty of wit, plenty of honesty, and plenty of beauty. Just how it should be.

Jones and Pappano gave us a tender, sensitive #ROHBoheme rather than a heartbreaking one, but with admirable attention to detail.

The set moves with the grace of a tank but otherwise so much to enjoy in #ROHboheme
