Curtain call photos from yesterday’s Traviata … Arturo Chacón-Cruz stepping in for ill Joseph Calleja. Click on photo


And some Tweets:
  • “Keenlyside switching from Macbeth to Germont in the space of one day, wow!”
  • “surely, with Keenlyside as Giorgio Germont, it changes everything ! (Tézier was awesome too, but unfortunately prod was horrible)”
  • “Our La Traviata performance had a strong Georgio Germont too, Simon Keenlyside.”
  • “Apart form beautiful tone in his two arias it was Keenlyside’s stage presence, expressed i.e. in ball scene. Very strong.”

and some more curtain call photos of Macbeth
