• Some of our Favourite #HadrianWatchParty Reactions

    By COC Staff

    On Monday August 10, 2020, the COC presented a special one-night-only digital stream of Rufus Wainwright and Daniel MacIvor’s ground-breaking queer opera, Hadrian.

    More than 8,000 households tuned in from around the world and there were many people actively live-tweeting throughout, using the #HadrianWatchParty hashtag.

    We have to say: your tweets literally brought us to tears –– sometimes with laughter and sometimes with sheer emotion. We’ve pulled a few of our favourites below –– but you can check out the full list on Twitter by searching #HadrianWatchParty!

    Lots of love from the first-time opera crowd (We’re so happy you joined us!)

    Plenty of people were loving the drama

    Others appreciated Hadrian’s score and bold staging

    When you find out that you and opera aren’t so different after all...

    ...and then you realize you’re emotionally invested

    By the end of it, there were just some minds blown, in general
