Florida Grand Opera's New Production of Werther
Seeded by fgo on 11 Apr 2019
Author: Florida Grand Opera
Massenet’s most romantic tragedy is inspired by a true story of unrequited love originally penned by the genius of modern German literature, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. Werther is the story of the idealistic poet who cannot live without love and the object of his obsession, Charlotte. Massenet’s music brims with emotion and exquisite melody, and it was a major influence on Puccini’s style of composition.
