Musically loved it! Especially Act 3 & 4 were gripping! Special mention must go to Chorus. #ROHTell

A great #ROHtell yesterday night, A superb Pappano conducted this masterpiece! Many boos during the rape, remember Rossini wrote this

Lots of outrage re outrage at #ROHTell. Go and see it before you say the booing was undeserved.

Why can't those idiots at Covent Garden grasp that a violent rape scene is not depicted in Rossini's music? #ROHTell

#ROHTell Wonderful production of Tell which clearly touched a nerve with low brow booers.

Some very fine singing from leads, chorus patchy at times, great orchestra and some smart ideas in the prod, though weak overall! #ROHTell

I miss the rubber shark Idomeneo. It was a simpler time. #ROHTell

But this #ROHTell won't be on my list of favourite productions. Ignores important & conflicting themes e.g. love & duty.

#ROHTell upsettingly powerful. Is that the point in an opera about war and occupation, or was it gratuitous? To ponder - sign of good art?

What did you think of William Tell?
