I am so happy I have finally seen @ErmonelaJaho's legendary Violetta. No recording can replace witnessing a great performance live. So dramatic!
And it's dark in the theatre, so one can cry freely. I probably shed a year's worth of tears in Act 3 alone.

Grazie @ErmonelaJaho, tonight you have reminded us why we love opera.
Seeing your Violetta again remains an unforgettable experience

Sumptuous voluptuous vocal tone, but this sleepy #ROHTraviata feels like it’s been dragged out of hibernation. Manacorda’s conducting is like a dying pulse and the staging a series of dramatically inert tableaux vivants with Jaho languidly voguing her way through. What a shame. pic.twitter.com/nhWo46AcD9
