@richardwjones As good as Angela Gheorgiu was as Tosca, nobody will ever be quite as good as Maria Callas.
@talopine Being made VERY jealous by all the people in my timeline who are raving over on the BBC with Kaufman and Terfel.
@Random_Opera After brilliance of earlier, why are we being given repeats of f***ing Morecambe & Wise on BBC2 (and equal shit on other channels...)
@jonathanclinch Sooo true.... RT is trending, c'mon don't just put decent opera on the tele at Xmas, people WANT to watch it!!!!!
@sanathaash1993 was awesome!
@Operazzi “: Is this really suitable viewing for a Saturday afternoon - torture, attempted rape, murder, execution, suicide? ” ALWAYS!
@itsmao and now .T when am I going to stop crying?
is trending, OPERA ISN'T DEAD!!
@DrPiffle It was amazing, wasn't it? Sublime leads, spec JK. Orchestra in fine form too.
@BlueBaby was frightening enough from the amphitheatre.On TV he was terrifying 'thavenightmares
@stu_melling Tosca over: tears dried and the excitement of my first visit to on Feb 11th kicks in now.

@tonyhatfield tears- end of
@John_Denny Anyone else think Scarpia looks like Ed Balls?
@clavdivs1 That was SUPERB! We need more opera on the telly!
@_Joliffe FINALLY. Needn't of jumped, I'd happily of pushed.
@danny_blue2004 I've always had this image of her popping back up again
@MahlerMad I HAVE NO MORE TEARS
@goldenavenger1 Only slight downside of watching opera on the telly is I can see Cavaradossi breathing when he's meant to be dead.
@MahlerMad SCARPIA! AVANTI A DIO!
@railtonrailton Don't worry, he's still breathing
@RuthElleson Yikes, I never like watching this bit... ...
@MahlerMad Presto, su. Mario! Mario! MARIO!!!! AAAAAAAH!
@glittrgirl The good thing about watching opera at home is being able to bawl audibly.
@flumpmistress If he'd done that lip curl, I'd have probably fainted!
@greeboblackcat Humans yowling on tellybox. Staff bawling her eyes out. *nuzzles staff*
@MahlerMad *hugs cushion*
@TimSim85 I'll call you by a thousand loving names.
@Irma0316 I'm in absolute BITS. God, how I love Puccini :)
@MelJD46 'Together in harmony our souls fly to the ecstasy of love'
@lynnmb25 ..everything that's beautiful will find its voice in you...breaking my heart!
@findo I am in awe of JK right now
@millymelon Angela Gheorgiu's nipples: I can't understand why I can't see them in that dress
@chiller Guys, just get in the carriage and go. If you hang about like this it's not going to end well.
@Clavdivs1 No good plan starts with the line "You will be shot"
@brendadada Jonas Kauffman's e lucevan is the most emotional I've ever heard. Domingo would be proud.
@AngharadLee 'I die in despair and I have never loved life so much' - Jonas Kauffman u have brought me 2 tears. Stunning performance
@Cairnspolitics if you only watch 1 opera in your life then it should be Tosca. Terrific performances on BBC Two now
@EmilyOnsloe just... WOW
@leboyfriend e lucevan was exquisite
@amzenon Oh...Jonas... 'E lucevan le stelle' ..sigh... sigh... sigh...
@Erastes - typical man, going to be shot and all he can talk about is shagging. # lucevanlestelle :D
@manx_maid Beautiful diminuendi - Jonas' trademark
@dmartw Gibbering wreck after that
@HorizonVA Jonas Kaufmann *sigh*
@AngharadLee My 4yr old is loving on Not sure I can cope with anymore 'why' or 'what's he doing' questions mind. She's transfixed
@Gert You go girl! Kill the nasty bastard Scarpia
@brenbaritone being taped fr me at home.I saw the cast after queuing 16 hours over night.looking forward to reliving it:-)
@Becky_Todd We approve of . Blooming brilliant on the beeb in as he is in everything. Loved my auditorium shifts when he was on.
@RachelWolseley Oh I do love you Ange, despite everything...
@flumpmistress I'm not getting anything done, too enthralled!
@brianbg OMG That really can play a bad bastard.
@Clavdivs1 Don't trust the man you daft girl, he's spent the last act lip curling maliciously and squeezing your boyfriend's head in a vice!
@DiveSciDiva Even though I'm female even I'm finding Angela Gheorghiu's low cut dress distracting
@rob_f_1 never ever seen an opera before but current showing of is absolutely fantastic. Amazed. Thank you!
@raethepain Visi D'arte time! Unfortunate boob slippage there though.
@AngharadLeeThank God 4 .Relief fromXmas 4 a wee while.Terfel just head butted him Not classified as a fair fight in th valleys
@_widdershins Headbutt in an opera! Nicely done Bryn.
@sensisuperstar It's all kicking off on BBC2, Bryn Terfel has just butted some bloke...
@malatrope Doesn't Bryn Terfel look like Meatloaf
@Paul_Anater There's hope! RT : RT : is trending :D This restores my faith in humanity
@cazponty For all the ladies drooling at Jonas...good....all the more Bryn for me!
@CharlSkidmore Watching the same production of I camped outside the for. SO EXCITED. BBC 2 you've made my day.
@patrickxwest Can't help wondering if Meatloaf wouldn't make a good Scarpia
@Gert Take your dirty hands off Jonas, you brutes!
@JackSullivan2 Right that's it I'm going to write an opera so I can marry Jonas Kaufmann
@leboyfriend I'm a wreck already - and I have seen this more than any other opera so it's not like it's full of surprises.
@yourPollyanna Mother's just come into the room and asked if she's "chucked herself off the turrets yet?"
@billybothwell68 is even trending lol wow is this what happens when the x-factor finishes ? BBC HD folks its even better :)
