WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

One hundred twenty years after the opera's premiere, Werther is celebrated as one of Massenet's finest works, with a lush score of tragically beautiful music. The young poet Werther has fallen desperately in love with the beautiful Charlotte. When he discovers that she is honor-bound to marry Albert, he tries to stay away, but his passion draws him back to her. In despair, Werther decides the only way he can find peace is through death. Italian tenor Francesco Meli makes his WNO debut as the lovelorn poet Werther, and is joined by mezzo-soprano Sonia Ganassi as Charlotte. Their recent performances of these roles in Italy garnered praise for their chemistry and abilities as singing actors. Chris Alexander directs and WNO favorite Emmanuel Villaume returns to conduct Massenet's masterpiece.
