Episode: Werther

Director Richard Eyre returns to the Met with a new staging of Jules Massenet's tragic romance "Werther," starring Jonas Kaufmann and Elina Garanca 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 Bizic makes his Met debut as Charlotte's fiance, Albert; and Jonathan Summers is Charlotte's father, Le Bailli. Alain Altinoglu conducts the first new Met production of the opera in more than 40 years.
