CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.


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 titles. Running time approx. 2 hours 30 minutes

Performers Paul Nilon (Werther), Alice Coote (Charlotte), Ann Taylor (Charlotte - Oct 16/Nov 21), Pauline Courtin (Sophie), Peter Savidge (Albert), Grant Doyle (Albert - Nov 14/21), Donlad Maxwell (Le Bailiff), Richard Burkhard (Johann), Joshua Ellecott (Schmidt), Paul Rendall (Schmidt - Oct 9).
