Goethe’s story of the young loner Werther’s struggle against a cruel fate inspired Jules Massenet to write his most resonant opera. 

Werther is a torrid and deeply moving operatic romance that combines Tchaikovsky-like passion with Wagnerian atmosphere. But Massenet’s music casts its own spell, from the famous moonlight walk in which Werther discovers his adoration for Charlotte, promised to another man, to Charlotte’s own transformation into a woman of ferocious determination.

Eun Sun Kim, an opera conductor of considerable experience, leads this performance of Massenet’s score that celebrates the beauties of the female voice as much as it does the emotional possibilities of the orchestra. An expert cast joins her in bringing the ardent and intense emotional world of Werther to life.
