Werther by Jules Massenet

One of opera’s greatest depictions of impossible love, Werther is based on Goethe’s novel, The Sorrows of Young Werther. When Werther meets Charlotte, he falls instantly in love with her, but she is promised to another, whom she marries.  When Werther returns, Charlotte decides too late that she also loves him.  This unrequited affection and a relationship going wrong sets a resonant tone with everyone.  The truly grand French opera is a magnificent musical and psychological exploration of romance, obsession and the desire for poetry.
