Wetzlar, Germany. Werther is in love with Charlotte but when she becomes engaged to another man he has to give her up. After her marriage, Charlotte sends him away. Driven to despair by his impossible love, Werther commits suicide and expires in his beloved Charlotte's arms.

In this opera based on Goethe's novel, Massenet paints a faithful portrait of a personage who embodies the Romantic concept of melancholy caused by disappointed love.

Willy Decker's Romantic-Expressionist production has already won acclaim in various opera houses. The contrasting colours and impossible shapes match the different states of mind evoked by the plot.
