Using Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s famous epistolary novel Die Leiden des jungen Werther as a source, French composer Jules Massenet created an opera full of ecstatic emotion and intimate character portraits. His Werther counts as one of the central works of the French Romantic repertoire. It addresses the contrast between the exuberant Sturm-und-Drang love felt by the poet Werther, and the petty-bourgeois circumstances from which the object of his desire, Charlotte, cannot escape. Their hopeless love grows, until it becomes a grand rebellion against the unreasonable demands of growing up, and against a life without dreams. In highly poetic images and with sensitive character direction, stage director Tatjana Gürbaca creates deeply moving figures who, ultimately, fail: It is simply not possible to reconcile social constraints with the emotional vastness of their rapturous, all-consuming love. Appearing in the tenor role of Werther, which is one of the most beautiful and expressive roles in the French repertoire, is international star American Charles Castronovo. The role of Charlotte will be sung by French mezzo-soprano Stéphanie d’Oustrac, who has celebrated wide success in Zurich in Baroque operas by Charpentier, Monteverdi, and Rameau. And at the conductor’s podium is the young Lithuanian conductor Giedrė Šlekytė, a promising artist on her way to a major international career.
