23 December 2017: Final performance of Pagliacci in London

by Gwyn on 23 December 2017

Last night was Simon’s final performance of Tonio in Pagliacci at the Royal Opera House. He added a touch of festive cheer to the grim proceedings by donning a Santa hat during the play within the play, only discarding it before his final line “La Commedia è finita!”. The hat was then deposited by Simon onto the head of Beppe (Luis Gomes) during the curtain calls – a moment captured in the photo below! What an evening! A great way to end the run of Cavalleria Rusticana and Pagliacci performed by this magnificent cast!

More curtain call photos from last night have been added to the performance page, as well as some new reviews. Click on photo above…
