Wonderful to see Simon back on the Royal Opera House stage last night, making his role debut as Tonio in Pagliacci. Curtain call photos of yesterday’s sensational show have now been added to the performance page. Click on photo to view…

Twitter Roundup

Below are just some of the great comments that appeared on Twitter after the first night of the Cavalleria Rusticana and Pagliacci double bill:

What a spectacular return to the Royal Opera House, stealing the show (even the show he wasn’t in) by being the finest, most charismatic actor on stage, biting into and colouring the text, & singing splendidly. WELCOME BACK SIMON #ROHCavPag

#ROHCavPag Simon Keenlyside’s Prologo was a mini-opera in itself. So glad to see him back where he belongs.

Cool patrician @elinagaranca as Santuzza and wonderful to have Simon Keenlyside back on stage @TheRoyalOpera with his inimitable wild duck routine #rohCavPag  

Wonderful production, amazing cast! Glorious singing by #Simon Keenlyside #ROHcavpag

Superb singing in an inspired production: #ROHcavpag Highlights were Hymel’s anguished, thrilling Turiddu, Garanča’s vocally glamourous Santuzza, Keenlyside’s commanding, insinuating Tonio and the multi-talented @ROHchorus

Pagliacci cast also top drawer – Keenlyside singing fabulously as Alfio (sic!) – who knew – and Giannattasio sounding even better than last time as Nedda (is there a Tosca here…?) #ROHcavpag

A superb evening of verismo, swept along by the singers in a fantastic staging #rohcavpag
