I have been completely overwhelmed with the reactions from my debut at the Royal Opera House in Lucia di Lammermoor. It is obvious from all of the reviews that the press really loved all of the work that we put into making this revival of Katy Mitchell's production something truly special.
Here are some of my favorite reactions from twitter and the press:
@RoyalOperaHouse #Lucia Stunning, thrilling, shocking production. Orch & chorus fab, all soloists top notch but @Lisette_Oropesa truly breathtaking. Psychologically truthful acting, forensically detailed singing. Mad scene = pin drop. What a star. #ROHLucia— Jonathan Izard (@jonathanizard) November 28, 2017
Dear @Lisette_Oropesa I have just seen #rohlucia for the 3rd time. Please stop singing everywhere else and live @RoyalOperaHouse and sing everything there forever. Lucia, Salome, Wotan whatever, I don't care, just DON'T LEAVE! The End.— Magid El-Bushra (@magidelbushra) November 28, 2017
Our hard working principals after #ROHlucia last night. Saying goodbye to the lovely @CharlieTenor Luckily we get to keep @Lisette_Oropesa and @chrismaltman for a few more shows. pic.twitter.com/LZMNuMwE9A— ROH Chorus (@ROHchorus) November 12, 2017
Another fantastic Lucia from @Lisette_Oropesa at the ROH last night. So nice of her to spend some time afterwards with @NicolaSaid88 , the star of @FulhamOpera Lucia, which is also on right now. Happily there are no date clashes so you can see both! #thetwolucias pic.twitter.com/pQuQHPWH5r— Oliver Gibbs (@OliverGibbs2) November 9, 2017
#ROHLucia is absolutely stunning. Beautiful interpretation. Oropesa’s ‘Il dolce suono’ gave me the chills throughout. And Castronovo broke my heart at ‘ti rivogli...’ Bravi tutti! pic.twitter.com/4uif9czL7U— Akira C. (@akicviii) November 9, 2017
