Tenor sensation Vittorio Grigolo, on the heels of his stunning performances in Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette, takes on the title role of Werther, the young poet who seeks the unattainable love of the beautiful Charlotte, sung by mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard. Edward Gardner conducts Richard Eyre’s visual feast of a production.
A “dramatic production… masterfully done” – Huffington Post
“As Werther, the Italian tenor’s singing lives at extremes, at one moment poetically hushed, at the next full-throttle. Is it too much? No — this opera is about letting go of inhibition and Grigolo is a whirlwind of emotion.” – Financial Times
