About the Show/Event

Information for Werther at Royal Opera House, West End (Opera or Operetta). French romantic opera. Set in Germany, it tells the simple story of Werther and his unfulfilled love for Charlotte, whose promise to marry someone else must be kept. Familiar themes of self-sacrifice are here, along with forgiveness, humility and the inevitable, yet still deeply tragic, conclusion. From the opening of the opera when we first meet the six children of Charlotte's family as they sing carols, to the unbearably sad ending. Sung in French with English surtitles.
Approximate runtime 190minutes (including any interval).
Performers Juan Diego Florez (Werther), Jacques Imbrailo (Albert), Isabel Leonard (Charlotte), Heather Engebretson (Sophie), Alastair Miles (The Bailli), Vincent Ordonneau (Schmidt), Michael Mofidian (Johann), Stephanie Wake-Edwards (Kathchen), ByeongMin Gil (Bruhlmann).
