  • “Strong cast, but Keenlyside was the standout for me.”
  • “ROH Faust. Simon Keenlyside was by far the best thing on stage”
  • “Surreal FINALLY seeing Keenlyside and Terfel perform roles in #ROHFaust

As we have not been able to translate this online, we would be grateful if any Czech followers of this website could help and give us some further information regarding the concert that we could post on our page on the site.  Thanks in advance.

And a four star review in The Times for Simon’s Macbeth CD. Thanks Sue

Some Twitter comments:

  • “Loved #ROHfaust last night. Such a fun production & wonderful performances from @MalteseTenor @Bryn_Terfel @sonyayoncheva & Simon Keenlyside”

4 April 2014; Calleja twitters …

by Petra on 4 April 2014

Joseph Calleja twittered: ” Despite me having sung here at the Royal Opera House for more than a decade, it is always with a sense of, somehow, positive trepidation and deep respect that I approach the stage every single night whenever I sing here. Its such an amazing house with such a glorious tradition that one takes notice. Joined by my on stage tonight are a trio of simply amazing colleagues – Bryn Terfel, Simon Keenylisde (sic) and Sonya Yoncheva…I hope you all enjoy the evening! ”
