Werther: A Soul’s Tragedy
From 20 January to 04 February 2016 at the Opera Bastille. More than a century separates the publication of the novel from the creation of Massenet’s operatic drama. The composer remains faithful to Goethe’s personal literary model capturing palpable signs of nascent romanticism. Piotr Beczala, Stéphane Degout and Elīna Garanča perform in this forceful dramatic masterpiece.
