About

Irish National Opera presents
Werther

SAT 6 MAY
Live at The Everyman

Irish National Opera brings to The Everyman a production of Werther by Jules Massenet, performed in a new orchestration by Richard Peirson.

A masterly and nuanced portrayal of hopeless love.

Werther, the young poet. Charlotte, the woman he loves. And his best friend Albert, to whom she is engaged. Massenet transforms the triangle of Goethe’s hugely influential novel of impossible love into a hauntingly gentle and lyrical opera that sensitively traces the unfolding of a hopeless passion. So hopeless that, when Charlotte’s hot and cold feelings cause her to turn away from Werther yet again, tragedy cannot be averted.

Sung in French with English surtitles.

Performed in a new orchestration by Richard Peirson.

“This piece has everything” – mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato
