    Just watched La Traviata Zebedees yard n Hull, I am stunned absolutely fantastic Corrine Winters sang her socks off and acted the part to the hilt. I have never seen a better performance.

    Fabulous. Jaw. Dropping. Brighton loved it. The deck chairs were most appreciated. The interval interviews were great and the sing-along Coloratura was fun,But the main presenter was just skin crawling and all about him and placing his product. Bring back Kirsty Wark!

    Wonderful opportunity to watch for free! We are from Singapore and it was a great treat!

    I was actually quite disappointed with the Hammersmith showing. I'd taken my two children (aged 4 and 7) on an 1 hour bus journey after school to get there and found that the screen was between two busy main roads, there were no seats by 5.45pm and many of the seats were taken by very dubious characters who had clearly been drinking for most of the day. In the end we turned back and got the bus home. You live and learn....

      Dear Ben,

      I'm so sorry that you and your two children could not enjoy La traviata in Hammersmith. This venue was busier than expected, which on one hand is great news as we aim to reach as many people as possible, but it can be disappointing when you can't find a good place to sit. I hope you are more lucky next time.

      Best wishes,
      ROH BP Big Screens

    I saw it with friends last Summer in Bristol. It was superb. Thank you so much. A brilliant way to make opera accessible to children and anybody who is interested but cannot afford ticket prices or get to the theatre.
