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.

Performers Rolando Villazon (Werther), Sophie Koch (Charlotte), Audun Iversen (Albert), Alain Vernhes (Le Bailli), Darren Jeffery (Johann), Stuart Patterson (Schmidt), Eri Nakamura (Sophie).
