It’s that time of the month when my darling daughter pesters me about seeing MET Opera and convinces me why it being on a school night is actually a good thing and does not interfere with my weekend plans – this kid would do anything for performing arts.
So…the fabulous “Meydan IMAX Theatre presents the Met Opera’s seventh installment, Jules Massenet’ WERTHER this coming week – on April 6th.
Director Richard Eyre returns to the Met with a new staging of Massenet’s tragic romance Werther, starring Jonas Kaufmann and Sophie Koch in their first Met performances as the brooding poet Werther and his unattainable love, Charlotte.
Lisette Oropesa sings the role of Sophie, Charlotte’s sister; David Bižićmakes his Met debut as Charlotte’s fiancé, Albert; and Jonathan Summers is Charlotte’s father, Le Bailli.
Alain Altinoglu conducts the first new Met production of the opera in more than forty years
