Drama. Passion. Volume. Beautiful voices.
Truly world class singing delivered by a spectacular cast (Netrebko, Kaufmann, Tézier, Furlanetto) in Acts 1 & 2 of #ROHForza.
Two more acts to go. Looks like it's going to be a very special night at the opera! I am so lucky to be here.

Forza last night was the kind of performance that re-affirms your opera-love: belting singing, intelligent production, stirring music. The four hours flew by. #ROHForza (Pic: ROH) pic.twitter.com/8UnsiZf7hA
