Irresistibly melodic and extraordinarily romantic, this new production of Massenet’s Werther, March 11-20, is set in an arrondissement outside Paris and a cinematic dreamscape inspired by the poetic realism of film director Jean Renoir. Based on Goethe’s heartbreaking novel, The Sorrows of Young Werther, the story unfolds as a dying artist recounts the love he cannot forget.
